Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

I’ve never been a fan of cold appetizers at holiday parties, especially appetizers that are meant to be served hot. So how do you keep appetizers warm throughout a party? The slow cooker! I love these Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs because you can make them days in advance and with minimal effort. All the magic happens in the slow cooker! Super juicy, tender meatballs smothered with marinara sauce and stuffed with mozzarella with grated parmesan.

You can serve these meatballs right from the slow cooker, or place them on a serving platter next to the slow cooker so your guests can help themselves!

Don’t have a slow cooker? Pick one up from H-E-B! They also sell other kitchen and home appliances.

I wasn’t expecting any leftovers so I made an extra batch for meatballs and spaghetti during the week!
