Delicious meatballs made easy in the crockpot. Tastes like home-cooked meatloaf and covered with a flavorful, tomato based sauce. 

It's so useful to be able to quickly throw together ingredients, walk away for a couple of hours, and come back to the delicious smell of a home-cooked meal. Crockpots meals are the best when it comes to easy and mostly hands-off recipes. 

Meals like this are perfect time savers for busy days. They involve less time, less hassle, and less mess. With the start of the new year, busy days will become more and more frequent making a recipe like this a helpful and tasty go-to.

These meatballs are also great for parties and gatherings. You can serve them straight out of the crockpot and they provide an option other than chips and snack items. And with New Year’s Eve approaching, parties will be all around!
