Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tripled this to bring to a buffet event of about 45 people. I tripled this to bring to a buffet event of about 45 people. It took a long time to roll that many meatballs (is there such a thing as a meatball maker?) but it was worth it. I browned them in the oven in a large pan at about 350 degrees, then transferred to the pot for cooking. A triple recipe uses exactly one bottle of Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce. It fit perfectly into a large crock pot for serving hot. They smelled and tasted delicious and were gone before my husband went back for seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I double the recipe and use the frozen meatballs. I double the recipe and use the frozen meatballs. I slow cook them with a finely chopped onion until warm and then add 1 tsp ground mustard and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper to the apricot and BBQ sauce mixture to give it an extra pop.

This is such a refreshing change from the old grape jelly and BBQ sauce recipe that I see at every party! The apricot preserves give it a nice tang and not as much of the sweetness as the grape jelly recipe. I used pre-made meatballs, placed everything in a crock pot and made it in a snap! P.S. Be prepared, everyone will want the recipe for these, they're always a huge hit!

I made this for christmas food day at work..i used 3lbs of meat and made the recipe accordingly..i had 3 meatballs left at the end of the day! they were delicious..everyone was overstuffed..it made A LOT of food. next time i will make them a little smaller and glaze them with the sauce when i bake, instead of pouring it all over. Super delicious recipe!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was good, however, definitely a little too sweet. This recipe was good, however, definitely a little too sweet. The meatballs were a lot of work, but were very tasty! I also doubled the sauce, because the amount in the recipe doesnt even cover the meatballs up. I would make again, but its not my absolute favorite. I am still in search of an even better recipe for meatballs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for a family reunion and they were a big hit. I made these for a family reunion and they were a big hit. Not one meatball left. I couldnt find a small jar of preserves, so I used a big jar and doubled the BBQ so I could keep them in a crock pot easily. I also added some Chipotle Tabasco sauce to the meatball sauce for a spicy kick. I will be making these again! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had been looking for a good meatball recipe, this is it! I had been looking for a good meatball recipe, this is it! No frying necessary (which makes them just a bit healthier). And the sauce is great, I am not a BBQ fan, but the apricot works to really give it a great taste, I couldn't even taste the BBQ sauce! I will definitely be making these again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't beat this recipe! You can't beat this recipe! Small children to older adults really enjoy these meatballs. I usually serve it at parties and family get togethers. I first tried this recipe from my Kraft recipe cookbook that I have had for several years. It's great seeing it out there for everyone to try. Thanks!
