  • 12oz bottle Frank’s Buffalo Sauce (or your own sauce)


  1. Mix all ingredients except for hot sauce. (We chop the carrots and celery in food processor but you can mince by hand)
  2. Makes about 16 meatballs (Serves 4)
  3. Spray inside crockpot with cooking spray. Brown meatballs on stove (don’t cook all the way through- we have a crock pot with a removable insert and just used that to brown the meatballs)
  4. Replace crock pot liner into crock pot, cover meatballs with hot sauce. Cook on low for 7 hours. Serve with ranch or bleu cheese. Can be served on a grinder roll or over egg noodles.

Each week during the Fall and Winter The Centsible Family will showcase a slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe that one of the Mavens of Money have tried and tasted.

By sharing we hope you will be able to save a little time during the week as we all know saving time is just as valuable as saving money.  And you will be able to enjoy a hot meal at the end of your day.
