Easy and delicious.
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!

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.
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.

Place meatballs in crock pot. Stir together chili sauce and cranberry sauce (a whisk works best for this). Pour sauce over meatballs and stir. Cook on low heat for 2-3 hours or until meatballs are thawed and hot.

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.
The frozen pre-cooked meatballs can be added frozen. I like making my own meatballs the day before I need them. I recommend using a good chilli sauce and I use Ocean Spray cranberry jellied sauce.
Add all of the ingredients to a 3 quart crock pot. Give it a stir, and cook on low for 5 - 6 hrs. or high for 3 - 4 hrs.

Put one 18 oz. bottle of B.B.Q. sauce and one quart of tomato juice (or stewed tomatoes) over cooked meatballs in crock pot.
Cook until sauce is done. Mushrooms, onions or green pepper may be added. This makes a great easy no mess dish for showers and other get-togethers.
Quick, Easy and Delicious recipe. My teenage son even loves this. I make this in a crock pot.
Yes, that's right. I always make a double batch of these. Add some rice and salad from a bag and your set. Or make meatball sandwiches.

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!

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.
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.

We put about 5 lbs. of already cooked frozen Italian Style meatballs in a 6 quart crockpot, then added one 28 ounce jar of honey hickory bbq sauce with about 14 ounces of water, and let simmer for a few hours. Yummy! Any leftovers can be frozen in plastic containers with the sauce.

Place frozen meatballs in crockpot. Mix the soups and gravy and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours. Serve with rice or potatoes. Also excellent as an appetizer.
