What You Need

1/2

1

Make It

HEAT oven to 375ºF.

COMBINE tomatoes, 3/4 cup barbecue sauce and onion powder in slow cooker; cover with lid. Cook on HIGH until ready to add meatballs.

MEANWHILE, cover 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil; spray with cooking spray. Mix meat, eggs, cracker crumbs, cheese and remaining barbecue sauce. Shape into 72 small meatballs, using about 1 Tbsp. meat mixture for each. Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake 15 min. or until done.

ADD meatballs to slow cooker; stir to evenly coat with sauce. Reduce heat to LOW to keep meatballs warm until ready to serve right from slow cooker.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve in crusty sandwich buns.
Note
This is a great recipe to serve a party since the slow cooker keeps the meatballs at a safe temperature until serving time.
