Easy Crockpot Italian Meatballs Recipe

Hi friends and happy Wednesday! I hope your week is off to a great start! I’m headed to Denver tomorrow for a leadership retreat and I am seriously hoping for some cooler weather! Speaking of cooler weather, I am super excited to finally share my Easy Crockpot Meatballs Recipe with you! I adapted these from this Skinnytaste recipe and turned them into a crockpot recipe. It’s just so much easier for busy days! I prefer ground beef over turkey and was running out of time to make my own sauce, so I improvised and they turned out amazing. I even doubled the recipe last time and froze half of the uncooked meatballs. Then when I was ready to cook them, I threw them in the crockpot frozen with the exact recipe as below! Take a peek at my Easy Crockpot Meatballs Recipe!! You and your family will love it!!

Easy Crockpot Italian Meatballs Recipe

The easiest meatballs you will ever make! Perfect for those busy weeknights!!

Course Main Course

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs (I use gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup parmesean cheese
  • 1/4 cup parsley (chopped) *can use fresh, but dried works in a pinch!
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 jar of marinara sauce

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, egg, garlic, salt and pepper together. Mix up until combined. Form small meatballs, mine are about 1/4 inch. Pour the jar of sauce into crockpot. Slowly drop in meatballs one by one. Cook on low, 5-6 hours. Serve over pasta or zoodles. My kids love this over noodles with a side of garlic bread!

Recipe Notes

*meatballs freeze well. I do not cook mine prior to freezing.
If you freeze the meatballs, follow the steps above, by pouring the sauce into the crockpot and dropping in the meatballs. Cook on low, 6 hours.

I have and love this CROCKPOT. We’ve had it for years! It’s nothing fancy, but it gets the job done!! Love it!!
