Reviews for BBQ Sauce Meatballs
"They are delish!!! Takes a few min to assemble in the crockpot. I make this a day before a holiday n just heat them up when the guests arrive."
"I thought these were excellent. I made for Christmas Eve. Everyone loved them! Would def make again."
"Did it according to directions (except I used pre-cooked meatballs)"
"I made these for a Holloween Party and they were a hit!!"
"I made these twice over the holidays and they were such a hit... and SO easy!!!"
"This recipe was amazingly delicious!!! Would also be good if a person didn't make meatballs but just put ground meat and mixed it all up. Would be excellent to eat like sloppy joes!!"
"This is a good recipe, though a little salty. My family liked it. I put the slow cooker on high for the first hour of cooking to increase the temperature faster, since I'm a little apprehensive about starting with raw ground meat in that appliance."
