Slow Cooker Honey Buffalo Meatballs
I am always looking for appetizers that I can take to family functions or my kid activity functions. THIS is my new go to recipe. I was not sure when I first saw the recipe had Frank’s Hot Sauce included as a main ingredient. I thought for sure it would be way too spicy for anyone but me.
I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. A sweet taste followed by some hotness but nothing too hot. You could spice it up and add more Frank’s if it isn’t hot enough for you.
As always, I had my neighbor John come over for a taste test. I got the “ehhh I don’t know’. He then went in for a second try and a third and then a bowl. Definitely a hit!
After I got my pictures done and was snacking from the bowl, my kids asked if they could try the meatballs. Within minutes, the bowl was empty and my kids asked me to make more. Definitely, a kid friendly food .
I used Jenni-O turkey meatballs, but you could use any type you like. Two hours to cook and then put it on warm temperature. Serve right from the crock-pot!
As you can see from the picture, I purchase my honey in bulk. The local apple orchard sells honey by the half gallon and you can taste the honeysuckle nectar in it. If you can purchase local honey, do that before you purchase from the store. Local honey always has a better flavor and texture.

These meatballs were such a hit at a party I had over the weekend. My husband who is the pickiest eater ever was begging me to make these when we got home. Soooo good and super easy!
