The Joy of Crockpot Meatballs

Crockpot meatballs get a lot of attention on my blog and my reports tell me people want to know:

-How to cook crockpot pre-cooked meatballs
-How long to cook meatballs in the crockpot
-What to mix with pre-cooked meatballs

I love cooking pre-cooked meatballs in a crock pot. They turn out great and are perfect as appetizers, in spaghetti or for a buffet or pot luck meal. I often cook it to serve over rice in various ways as well.

I make Tangy meatballs that are a favourite for many and include:
-2/3 jar Welch's Grape Jelly
-1 tsp dry mustard
-2 bottles Heinz Chili Sauce
-1 box Italian Meatballs (I like Schneider's Meat Balls or President's Choice (PC) Meat Balls)


Swedish Sweet & Sour Meatballs
-1 jar Sweet & Sour Sauce
-1 box Swedish Meatballs

Both these recipes are great for appetizers or for a meal serve on a bed of Basmati rice.

You can also use pre-cooked meatballs in your favourite Spaghetti sauce. The beauty of crockpot meatballs is that the longer they cook, the tastier they become and because they're pre-cooked, within a few hours they are ready to eat. Keep an eye so they don't become burnt but generally they're thawed within a few hours and get soft within about 4 when you cook at low temperature.
