I love the flavor the cabbage gives this meal. Instead of making cabbage rolls, when my children were little, I would just make it this way and just not give the cabbage to the children. My husband and I could still enjoy the flavors together and the children loved the little hamburger balls and potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 2 lb. ground beef
  • 3/4 cups instant rice
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. diced garlic
  • 2 cans of tomato soup
  • 4 or 5 potatoes, cut into quarters

Directions:

Place peeled and quartered potatoes into the bottom of crock pot. Mix the ground beef, instant rice, onion, seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic together. Shape into balls about 2 inches around. Put the meatball on top of potatoes.

Cut the cabbage in half and then cut each half into wedges, place over the meatballs. Mix the 2 cans of tomato soup with 1 cup water and pour over the ingredients in the crockpot. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours, or high for 2 hours, changing to low for 4 hours, or until potatoes are soft.

Easy and delicious.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Mix two can of cream of mushroom soup with 1 can of water. Put meatballs (28 or so) in crock pot and pour soup mixture over them. Add salt, pepper, and minced onions. Cook on high for about 4 hours or low for about 8 hours. Serve them over rice or noodles or mashed potatoes. So very good. We love them.

I always make more than we need for one meal, then we can have the leftovers the next night for supper!

In a bowl, mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, onion, and egg. Shape the mixture into 16 balls. In a slow cooker, mix the spaghetti sauce, crushed tomatoes, and tomato puree.

This is a tasty little meatball that everyone will like and it's easy to do. I like using the cranberry jellied sauce. It creates a little zing in your mouth.

Does anyone have a quick recipe for meatballs in a crockpot? In essence of saving time, I am going to buy the frozen ones and cook in some type of sauce. Any sauce suggestions? Thanks.

I have used the frozen meatballs in a crock pot & I do heat them up in the microwave first. Mix together enough barbecue sauce that you think will coat the meatballs and a jar of grape jelly together and pour over the meatballs that are in the crock pot. Simmer for as long as you need to keep them warm-um-um good!

After putting meatballs in the crockpot. I add 1 small diced onion, 1 green pepper diced, and 1 can of pineapple chunks. then i mix 1 cup ofbeef broth-alll the juice from the juice from the pineapple and 1/2 cup of soy sauce, pour over meat and let cook in this liquid. serve over rice.

Also Alfredo sauce is good over them. Any beef gravy. All can be served with pasta or potatoes or rice.

OK, here's one more recipe-most unusual one for meatballs I ever had, served at a baby shower & I begged for the recipe.

5# bag meatballs

1 can sauerkraut, drained

1 can whole cranberry sauce

1 jar chili sauce, then fill that jar 1/2 full of water & add

1/2c. brown sugar

Mix sauce ingredients thoroughly & pour over meatballs....I'm sorry, I don't have exact times, but I cook on low until meatballs are thoroughly heated in middle (most frozen meatballs are pre-cooked, but double-check!)...usually for 2-3 hours.

They taste wonderful!

I use Momma Rosa's frozen meatballs. Place in large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and then drain in colander to remove all water and fat. I recommend this no matter what gravy or sauce you use. Place meatballs in Crockpot. Mix approximate equal parts Heinz Chili Sauce with Grape Jelly and mix well. Pour sauce over meatballs. Cook on low 2-3 hours.

3 (12 oz) bottles Heinz Chili Sauce

1 (32 oz) jar grape jelly

5 lb bag frozen cocktail meatballs (or more)

At a party I went to, they had meatballs that had chili sauce and grape jelly. Does anyone know how much sauce and jelly you would need per large bag of frozen meatballs? Thank you!

One jar of chili sauce and one about 15-16 oz jar of grape jelly. I'm made that many, many times always go over well.

I make a very similar recipe. For 2 pounds of meat I used a 15 oz can of whole cranberry sauce and 16 oz of tomato sauce. Substitute similar sizes of grape jelly and chili sauce.

Depending on the size of the bag of meatballs, use a medium to large jar of grape jelly and one to two bottles of chili sauce. I have also used marmalade in place of the grape jelly, but that is an acquired taste for some.
