Super Bowl CrockPot Meatballs Day

Super Bowl Sunday is one of my favorite days.  Not because I love watching overpaid athletes ruin their bodies but because I love the commercials, beer and most importantly: the food.  This year, I opted out of my usual CrockPot pulled pork, and chose to make some homemade BBQ meatballs!  As usual, I was missing an ingredient here and there from the recipe, and measuring really isn’t my thing, so below is a rough guesstimate of what went in…


  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 4 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 clove minced garlic

Everything for meatballs combined!

Mix ingredients together well.  Create about 1 inch meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.

Meatballs in the oven!

BBQ Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 can (small) tomato paste
  • A little more than 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used reduced-sodium)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (I used Frank’s)

Mix the sauce ingredients together and combine with cooked meatballs in CrockPot.  Cook on low for about 4 hours.

Enjoy! Good thing I captured this picture before they were all gone!
