Mini Hot Dogs 'n' Meatballs Recipe

Hot appetizers don't come much easier than this recipe. It's so popular I usually double the recipe if I have a larger crock pot. You can vary the meats to suit your family's tastes, or increase the heat factor by using a spicier barbecue or spaghetti sauce. Serve with fancy party picks. —Andrea Chamberlain, Macedon, New York
