Grilled Honey-Barbecue Meatball Packets

Make simple foil pouches then pop in frozen meatballs, fresh corn and other veggies, and quick sauce to cook together on the grill.

Prep Time



Total Time






cup barbecue sauce
cup honey
frozen cooked meatballs
(1/4-inch-thick) slices sweet onion (such as Walla Walla)
Green Giant® Nibblers® Frozen Corn-on-the-Cob
cups refrigerated sliced cooked potatoes (from 1 lb. 4-oz. pkg.)
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
  1. Heat grill. Cut four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray half of one side of each foil sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In small bowl, combine barbecue sauce and honey; blend well.
  2. Place 4 meatballs, 2 onion slices, 2 cobs of corn and 1/2 cup sliced potatoes on center of sprayed side of each sheet of foil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spoon 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce mixture onto meatballs and vegetables on each foil sheet.
  3. Fold foil over meatballs and vegetables so edges meet. Wrap packets securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion, then fold again.
  4. When ready to grill, place packets on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly heated and potatoes are tender, turning several times.
  5. Cut large X in center of each foil packet; open packets carefully to allow steam to escape.
