Bourbon Whiskey Meatballs-Crock Pot or Oven

Oh yes, I said bourbon and oh yes, it adds great flavor! This recipe for Bourbon Whiskey Meatballs calls for pretty basic ingredients (provided you have a bottle of bourbon on hand-you know, for BBQ sauces:@) I love the sticky sweet thick sauce, it's one of the best I've ever added to meatballs! The original recipe is made in a crock pot, I made mine in the oven.  
This a real crowd pleaser folks, don't hesitate to give it a try for a football party or the holidays!

Holiday Bourbon Whiskey Meatballs-from TastyKitchen
1 lb frozen meatballs
1/2 C ketchup
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1/4 C bourbon whiskey
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  1. Mix everything except meatballs.
  2. Add frozen meatballs to crock pot or baking dish, pour sauce over and mix well.
  3. If using crock pot: turn up to high for one hour, stirring a few times. Then turn to low until ready to serve.
  4. If using oven: Mix everything, cover dish in foil and place in preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil, stir and bake for 20 minutes more, stir and serve.
  5. Cute toothpicks optional... but highly recommended:@)


  1. Just the name alone is enough to make me want to try these!

  2. Bourbon (or rum) makes everything better. These look like a real crowd pleaser Lynn.

  3. I had a similar version recently but without the bourbon. I like your recipe better ;-)

  4. These look delicious!! Bourbon flavored anything is always delicious, I am going to have to give these a try!!

  5. Our gang would LOVE these, Lynn! NO HOT PEPPERS IN THEM, either! LOL

    I fixed something with meatballs this week, too. Come on over & see for yourself, especially DESSERT!!

  6. Amazing color on those meatballs. Wonder how tequila might do as a substitute. To each her own. :)

  7. I love sticky sauce, too, Lynn, and I know my son will love these as well. It will be a good treat for when the gang comes over. xo

  8. Now these look really good and oh that sauce!

  9. The hubby would love these (well,me, too!). If I made these and some baked beans, he'd be in his own foodie heaven!

  10. Yum, These look delicious, even at 6 AM! Now, I'm sure I could find some bourbon in the cupboard but I'm not really sure about the difference between bourbon, scotch, I may have to try a few. Linda

  11. Oh my....meatballs and bourbon, my hubby's two favorite food groups :) I'll definitely have to break out the crock pot and try these!

  12. We are having a little cocktail party next week and you can be sure these will be offered!

  13. This is my kind of food. I could sneak off with the bowl and eat them all! Seriously!

  14. Mmmm, I wish I was having these for dinner tonight! With the weather getting colder it's like my need for comfort food has shot through the roof!

  15. Hi Lynn,
    I just love the sauce for your meatballs, they will be great for parties! Hope you are having a fantastic weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday!
