French Onion Meatballs

I found this recipe a while back on Six Sister's Stuff.  If you haven't visited their site, go take a look.  They have lots of recipes and they look wonderful! 

I love using my slow cooker, but I have trouble finding new recipes for it.   So many call for some kind of cream soup and those recipes just don't appeal to my tastebuds (or waistline for that matter)!  So I was pretty excited when I found this one!  It only has two ingredients and there was no cream soup!!  I served these meatballs on rolls, but I think they would also be great for an appetizer or even served over noodles with a veggie on the side! 

We all seem to have different tastes in our house so I'm very happy to add this to our menu rotation!  We ALL liked these!

You will need 2 (10.5 oz.) cans of French Onion soup and a 32 oz. package of fully cooked frozen meatballs.  I used the Italian style.  Spray your crockpot with nonstick spray. (Next time, I will use a slow cooker liner- I was out. . .)  Place meatballs in slow cooker and pour soup over meatballs.  Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours or high for about 2 hours.  I cooked them on low and they were done in about 3 hours and I just turned my slow cooker to WARM until we were ready to eat. 

 These are the rolls I served them on!   These would also be great on the smaller Hawaiian rolls for party size sandwiches!

 . . . or just pick up some fancy toothpicks and serve them straight out of the slow cooker as a yummy appetizer!

This is such a family friendly recipe!  Loved this one!
