Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Meatballs

Crock Pot Honey Sesame Meatballs

Welcome back from break and happy Monday! I am feeling rather groggy today. It has been more than two weeks since we’ve had to get up before the crack of dawn. But it is time to switch from vacation mode, back into work mode.

Three of my crockpot recipes were in the 20 most popular recipes from 2014, which tells me that all of you love using your crock pot as much as I love using mine! So, I am going to try to share more slow cooker recipes with you this year. The first recipe I want to share, is for Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Meatballs. They are similar to Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken and can be used as a meal or as an appetizer.

    I LOVE this idea! Much as they are a tradition, I get pretty tired of the grape jelly/bbq sauce meatballs that are typically offered up at gatherings. This looks like an incredible sauce. My kids would love these over rice for dinner, and BONUS. EASY!!
