More fun with Meatballs for Parties

Here are a couple more quick and easy recipes for your crock pot slow cooker. Either one sounds like it would be big hit at a Super Bowl party.

Start with a three pound bag of pre-made frozen meatballs from the frozen meat section of your supermarket. A 1 quart jar of your favorite spagetti sauce (you can extend it with a can of diced tomatoes with italian seasoning). That's it. 4-8 hours on high in the crock pot. Either call them hors d'oeurves with a shot glass full of fancy toothpicks, or supply sub rolls and a stack of sliced provolone cheese for meatball sandwiches. Depends on the crowd.

For a variation on the theme - use a jar of sweet & sour sauce from the oriental aisle in place of the spagetti sauce and add some diced pineapple in the last 45 minutes.
