  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • 1 pound bag frozen meatballs

  • ½

    cup ketchup, heaping

  • ½

    cup brown sugar, packed

  • ¼

    cups bourbon whiskey

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1

    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


NOTE: 1 bag of (1 pound) frozen meatballs is only about 18 to 20 larger size meatballs. That is perfect for a small get-together. But if you’re going to a larger party, you might want to get TWO bags of meatballs, and in that case you would then DOUBLE the above recipe. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except your meatballs. Mix up really well. Place your frozen meatballs into your crock pot, and pour the whiskey sauce in on top. Mix it up all around so each meatball is coated with the whiskey sauce. Now turn up the heat to high. Leave it on high for about an hour, stirring a couple times. Once it appears that the meatballs have somewhat thawed, go ahead and turn your crockpot down to low. Cook for at least an hour so the meatballs soak up some of the yummy sauce. Serve with toothpicks.
