Slow Cooker Meatballs

I got a new Crock Pot for Christmas and I have been putting it to good use. Thanks to my good friend over at 365 Days Of Slow Cooking, I have tried some fabulous new recipes and here is one of them:


Slow Cooker Meatballs
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • 28 oz can of spaghetti sauce
  • Mozzarella
Mix meat, oats, egg, 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce, onion, chili powder, and salt. Form into meatballs. Place into bottom of slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. When ready to eat, drain grease and pour the rest of spaghetti sauce over meatballs and warm. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top. I like mine over pasta, and Eric likes a meatball sandwich...so we had both.

* I used ground turkey instead of beef. It was still very good, but the meatballs didn't hold together as well and some fell apart. Beef would be best for this recipe.

Enjoy!
