  • Turn the crock pot on high and cover the bottom with a thin layer of Prego Italian sauce (or your choice of sauce) and place each meatball in the crock pot after it is rolled.  After the bottom layer is full of meatballs cover them with another layer of sauce and continue  the process until all the ground beef is used.
  • It usually makes about 30 golf ball sized meatballs.
  • Leave the crock pot on high for the first 2 hours and then turn down to low for 7 hours.


Now if you really like Hot and Spicy food, check out our Hot Corner for the level of pepper to your choosing and poke a few holes in it and place it in the sauce.  
The pepper flavors will soak into the pasta sauce and you will have "Highway to Hell Meatballs".  Make sure you choose wisely because some of the peppers are pretty Hot!!!!!
