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.
I’m super excited to be hosting the H-E-B Holiday Virtual Dinner with Kylie of Imma Eat That, and Vianney of Sweet Life Bake! And guess what, you get to join us!
From December 14‑19, share a photo on Instagram of your holiday appetizer, dinner, drinks, or dessert using #HEBCheerSweepstakes for a chance to win a $100 H‑E‑B Gift Card along with a $50 prize pack. Details here. I can’t wait to see what you whip up!

Follow HEB’s Pinterest Dinner Party board for inspiring recipe ideas for your holiday party.
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!
