Hosting a holiday party, but in a crunch for time? I’m always in search of short cut dishes that taste delicious, but require minimal effort. These slow cooker sweet and sour meatballs are the perfect fix it and forget it dish. Simply throw the ingredients in your slow cooker and let it do the cooking for you!

I love cooking in my slow cooker. Not only is it wonderful for entertaining, it’s also great for easy week night dinners. I like to keep frozen meatballs on hand for those last minute parties or the days I just can’t make it to the grocery store. The flavor options are endless! Personally, I like mine sweet and sour style. Most of the ingredients I keep stocked in my fridge and pantry so last minute entertaining is a breeze.
