Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb hot sausage
2/3 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 onion, chopped

Mix all the above ingredients together well, form into meatballs, and brown on all sides in a large skillet.  Transfer from the skillet to a crockpot or slow cooker using a large slotted spoon.  All drippings to drip through the spoon before placing meatballs into the cooker.

Make a sauce by combining the following ingredients to gether in a mixing bowl then pour over the meatballs in the cooker:
