Slow Cooking Dinner: Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Meatballs

Continuing on my quest to come up with 25 dinners for the slow cooker that most of my family will eat. 

Recently, I made my absolute easiest slow cooker recipe ever. This is what I did:
  • Put a bag of frozen turkey meatballs in the slow cooker (mine was a 28 oz bag). 
  • Added a cup of barbecue sauce.
  • Added a can of cranberry sauce.
  • Stirred it around.
  • Cooked it all on low for 4-5 hours.

We always used to make our own meatballs, until we found out that we like the frozen brand our grocery store carries just as well. I served the meatballs over white rice, and it was a hit with everyone. The only change I would make is that next time I am going to try doing it more like this, with a little less barbecue sauce and some soy sauce added in to balance the flavors.

Here's a recap of the slow cooker recipes I've tried so far:

1. Santa Fe chicken

2. Sloppy joes

3. Baked potato bar

4. Sweet potato and black bean burritos

5.  Pumpkin turkey chili

6. Salsa-lime chicken nachos

7. Turkey and bean chili

That makes 8 recipes down, 17 to go. This week, I'm making barbecue chicken sandwiches using the slow cooker. I'll let you know how it goes!

  1. I like this idea! And I finally caved in and started buying frozen meatballs too. This might be our Thursday dinner this week.
