  • 1 ½ lbs ground beef (low fat content if you plan to cook with sauce)
  • 1 ¼ c Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 1 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 (28) oz jars spaghetti sauce



  • Mix first 5 ingredients together.  Shape into 16 meatballs.
  • Either precook them OR place sauce in slow cooker and then put meatballs over the top of the sauce, allowing it to cook for 6-8 hours on low.
  • Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles.

Freezer to Slow Cooker Instructions:

  • We rolled them into balls and placed them onto a cookie sheet.  We then placed the cookie sheet into the freezer so that they wouldn’t stick together when frozen.  Once they were all frozen, we threw them into the bag, making sure the bag was labeled.  Of course, if you plan to precook them before you freeze them you wouldn’t have to worry about it.  Always be sure to label your bag with the date and the name of the meal.
