Italian Meatballs and Sausages

Here’s a wonderful appetizer for the big game or any family function. Very easy to prepare and also very tasty. I’ve doubled and even tripled the recipe for large to huge groups. No matter how much I make, I always come home with an empty slow cooker. —Jan Kasinger, Graham, Washington
