These are yummy and easy! I use Costco Italian meatballs. For 40 minute recipe, follow alternate stovetop instructions, otherwise the entire time including crockpot is a minimum of 2 1/2 hours).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place frozen meatballs in crock pot.
  2. Make gravy according to package directions.
  3. Add Cranberry sauce, mustard, cream to gravy, and stir until well blended.
  4. Pour mixture over meatballs and stir to maek sure meatballs are coated with suce.
  5. Cook on low 4-5 hours, or 2-3 hours on high.
  6. To serve, use slotted spoon to remove meatballs from gravy into a serving dish (or drain gravy and serve from slow cooker).
  7. Garnish by scattering parsley over top if desired.
  8. Alternate directions: Rather than cooking in crockpot, add 1/3 cup water and simmer meatballs in sauce on stovetop for 30 minutes.
