When all our kids are home for Sunday dinner, I’d much rather be visiting and playing with babies than cooking. Because of that, I’m always on the lookout for meals that I can prep ahead of time. A few weeks ago I made a big crock pot full of meatballs, and topped them with my homemade barbecue sauce. I served them with hoagie rolls and hot dog buns, so that everyone could make their own meatball sandwiches.
Here’s the recipe I used. It’s enough to serve two dozen people generously. Any leftover meatballs can be frozen for later, or added to spaghetti sauce on spaghetti night. To make this recipe gluten free, serve over rice instead of on rolls, and use gluten-free oats and gluten-free soy sauce.
