Slow Cooker Tangy Hawaiian Meatballs


Tangy Hawaiian Meatballs, slow cooker style for ease {obviously} can be ate alone as an appetizer, or serve on a bed of rice as an entree.

You can make your own meatballs, or use the pre-made frozen variety, which I usually do. Easy and convenient is a great thing, right? And taste – well, you gotta have delicious!
