Slow Cooker Barbeque Meatballs

Are you looking for a simple and easy recipe for fall parties, football game tailgates, or even to take to the field for fall harvest?! These Slow Cooker Homemade Barbeque Meatballs are perfect for any of the activities above! As well as a simple dinner option!


Fall is a pretty busy season for us! Between kids in soccer, flag football, and gymnastics, pumpkin season, and harvest we are on the go a lot. Not to mention, school back in session, so homework.

What a perfect time to get out the Colts Crock Pot.

I make several batches of these homemade freezer meatballs. I flash freeze them to set up then place them in freezer bags, a batch grouped together. We generally eat one batch right away, then I save the others for a later time.

Pull the meatballs our frozen and place in the crockpot and they are ready to cook with the barbeque sauce mixture.


Delicious!!




Slow Cooker Barbeque Meatballs

Ingredients:

Homemade or Frozen Meatballs

I use homemade, so here is the recipe for them
2 lbs ground beef
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1 tsp pepper 
2 tsp parsley
2 tsp chopped onion

Directions:
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Roll out each meatball for desired size, I do about the diameter of a quarter, and place them on large cookie sheets. After all the meat mixture is rolled into meatballs, place the cookie sheets in the freezer to flash freeze individually. Remove cookie sheets from freezer and place all meatballs in freezer bags to freeze for later or prepare to cook. Makes about 50 to 60 meatballs for one batch.

When cooking the meatballs in a slow cooker, I use them right away after flash freezing. 

Barbeque sauce mixture 
Ingredients: 
I cup BBQ sauce 
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mustard
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
Worcestershire sauce to taste

Directions: 
Combine all the above ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and mix together until well combined. 

Place meatballs in crock pot and add the sauce mixture over top. Stir together until all meatballs are coated well. Cook on high for 6 hours in slow cooker. Serve.
