These Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Appetizer Meatballs are sure to be a crowd favorite. They are sweet and savory with a little kick. Perfect for game days!
These slow cooker appetizer meatballs are very similar to our Winger’s Sticky Finger recipe, in fact, the sauce recipe is EXACTLY the same… the only difference (obviously) is that you put the sauce over meatballs instead of wings. They are perfectly sweet and savory with just the right amount of kick. And seriously, this recipe couldn’t be easier! Just throw it all in the slow cooker and you’re done! In this case, I set my Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker on low for 3.5 hours and they were perfect!
The first time we made these we just served them as an appetizer.. the second time, we added pineapple and red peppers served the meatballs over rice and served it as a main dish (seriously, you have got to try it this way– SO good)! This is the perfect, quick appetizer for game day with family and friends– I don’t know about you but if family and friends are over I want to BE with them.. not in the kitchen the whole time. That is what makes these meatballs so awesome, it is literally 3 minutes of prep-time and you are done.
