This is a wonderful recipe for parties and get togethers of all kinds and they always disappear so fast! I made these several years ago for my daughter's wedding reception and people thought that they were absolutely delicious and wanted the recipe. I haven't made them in a while, but I've decided to make them for an upcoming church dinner, thanks to some suggestions from the great cooks here at JAP. You can use them as an appetizer or a meal served over noodles, rice or mashed potatoes. I hope that y'all enjoy these yummy meat balls.

How to Make French Onion Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. In crock pot, whisk together soup mix, soups, and water.
  2. If using Great Value Brand Frozen Homestyle Meatballs, remove from freezer and place in slow cooker. Stir together with sauce.
  3. Cook on low heat for about 4 to 6 hours or on high for about 2 to 3 hours, gently stirring occasionally. Serve hot.
  4. This recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled if you need to make a lot for a party or other get together. The frozen meatballs saves time and is very easy. I prefer the Great Value (Walmart) brand over the others that I've tried. Enjoy!
