These homemade meatballs are made with Olive Garden croutons. They're shaped, pan seared, and then slow cooked in the crockpot. It is a simple recipe that can be tweaked to your taste. I highly recommend cooking a trial meatball in the pan before you fry your first batch. Cook it like a mini hamburger pressing it slightly flat. Flip it over and brown the other side. Spoon a tablespoon of your sauce over the "burger". Taste the meatball to determine if you need to adjust seasoning to your taste.
