Easy Crockpot Meatballs

If you're like me, any crockpot meal is a real winner this time of the year!

This has been a go-to easy meal in our family for years. If you want to make it even simpler, you can use store-purchased meatballs.  

It's frugal and delicious! 

It makes a great Sunday dinner...it can cook while you're at church.
Or it's good for those busy days when you have lots of errands to run and want to have dinner ready with little fuss. 

We love it served over mashed potatoes or rice.
