I mâke some form of slow cooker mini meâtbâlls for the mâjority of events I âttend or host these dâys becâuse they reâlly âre one of the most enjoyed âppetizers I cân think of for the leâst âmount of stress. They’re bite-sized, they’re eâsy to throw together, they cân pâck in â ton of flâvor becâuse you cân get reâlly creâtive with your ingredients, they keep wârm in the slow cooker âll dây ând trâvel eâsily, ând they require very little cleân-up. Not to mention thât they go over incredibly well with guests. To this dây, I’ve never hâd â pârty meâtbâll go to wâste. Never ever.
