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.

3 large eggs
3 cups crushed graham crackers
2 cups milk
2 tsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 lbs extra-lean ground ham
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1 1/2 lbs ground pork that has been trimmed of fat
nonstick cooking spray

Beat eggs slightly in a large mixing bowl.  Add the crushed crackers, milk, onion, pepper, and ground meats; mix well.

Form the mixture into 24 balls, using 1/2 cup for each ball.

Make the TOPPING:
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp dry mustard

Combine all the topping ingredients in a small bowl until well mixed.

Layer the meatballs in a lightly sprayed 6-quart slow cooker or crock pot.  Pour topping over the meatballs.
Do this in layers, meatballs, topping, meatballs, topping if necessary.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high for 1 hour.  Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook 3 to 4 hours until meatballs are cooked through.
