If you want to cook tasty meatballs but don't want to spend time laboring over a hot stove, a crockpot can be your best friend. All you have to do is throw some frozen meatballs into the crockpot and walk away. Once the meatballs have been cooked, you can eat them alone, place them on bread to make a meatball sub, or serve them on a bed of pasta.

Empty the frozen meatballs from the bag into the crockpot. Leave about 2 inches of space between the top of the meatballs and the top of the crockpot.

Sprinkle salt and pepper over your meatballs to season them.

Pour your favorite sauce into the crockpot. Pour enough sauce into the pot to cover the meatballs. Use marinara sauce, spaghetti sauce, barbecue sauce or any other sauce your tastebuds crave.
