Microwave Bacon Meatballs with Grape Jelly Sauce

It’s always nice to have an easy to make crowd pleaser recipe on hand this time of year. What is yummier than Bacon Meatballs? Nothing. And so fast and easy to make- no stove required!








1 lb. hamburger or ground turkey

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

2 Tbls. finely chopped onions

2 slices cooked crumbled bacon

1 tsp. salt

Dash pepper

1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. ketchup

1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute

Add all ingredients to large bowl, mix with your hands, and form into about 18- 20 meatballs about 1 1/2 inch each.

Cover and microwave meatballs in an ungreased baking dish, 6 minutes on High, turning once.


For a quick and easy sauce combine 3/4 cup grape jelly and 1/2 cup chili sauce and 1 tbsp. lemon juice in a microwave safe bowl and mix well. Cover and nuke on med/hi  for one minute. Stir. Return to microwave and heat for additional 30 second increments, stirring often, till just bubbly. Put meatballs in a pretty dish and cover with sauce. Eat with toothpicks cuz it’s fun that way!


  1. That is fabulous.

    And, has given me an idea/inspiration to make a vegetarian version of this.

  2. These sound lovely and look lovely too xx

  3. Yummy! Boy do those looks good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. These look great are super easy and fast – could very possibly be on my snacking table during the present opening morning feasts

  5. I’ve made these before, without the bacon. The combination of grape jelly and chili sauce sounds strange, but it’s soooo good!

  6. I have never used bacon before in this recipe. Will have to try it since anything is better with bacon!
