Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes that the kids love too. These kid friendly easy slow cooker meatballs take only about 10 min to prepare and then cook in the slow cooker. There’s a lot of cheese and breadcrumbs, so even kids that aren’t crazy about meat usually like them. You might see the ingredients and say “goodness that’s a lot of cheese & bread” and want to make them a bit healthier – that works too. Just cut the amounts in half for a “meatier” meat ball.

Mix all of the ingredients, except for the olive oil & sauce, in a bowl. Mix really well and form into small meatballs. Heat the olive oil over medium heat and brown the meatballs well, drain and add to the slow cooker. Pour the pasta sauce over the meatballs and cook on high 4-5 hours of on low for 8-9hours. Serve over your favorite pasta and enjoy!
