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.
