I keep getting this video on slow cooker meatballs in my Facebook feed for several days now. I knew I wanted to make it as soon as I finished watching the tutorial. It looked so easy and I did have the basic ingredients on hand. I had to make some substitutions though.

This is my version. Combine in a bowl: 1 lb ground beef, 1 pack Hot Italian sausage with casings removed (I used chicken since that is what I have), 1 tsp. salt., 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp. parsley flakes ( I did not have fresh parsley), 1 egg and 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Mix until everything is well combined. Form into a ball, place a small piece of cheese (I used babybel cut into quarters) inside before sealing it.


Pour some prepared marinara sauce on your pot, I used my Salad Master multi-purpose cooker. Place your meatballs on top of the sauce and cover it with the rest of the marinara sauce. Set your cooker on it’s highest setting (450F), once the valve starts whistling lower the heat to 200F. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until done.




Serve over spaghetti and enjoy !
