    Meatballs have always been a favorite in my family and the recipe I use has been passed down from my mother. I have fond memories of her whipping up a batch and letting the aroma fill the house. This recipe has a nostalgic charm to it, originating from a family friend named Wally, who likely shared it with my mom in the ’80s.

    What’s great about this recipe is that it can be easily done in a slow cooker, just like many other Midwest favorites. It’s a toss-and-go type of dish that will free up some time for you to focus on other things.

    Now, I’m not exactly sure where crockpot meatballs came from. But one thing is for sure: they’re everywhere! With countless variations available, it’s no surprise that meatballs, crockpots, and sauce make such a winning combination.

    So, whether you’re hosting a party or simply need a quick and delicious dinner idea, try out this beloved recipe. Not only is it a crowd pleaser, but it also carries with it a legacy of tradition that’s sure to warm your heart.
