Member 1566315: They likely won't get mushy, but they might shrink and get a little tough if you cook them too long. It depends on the meatballs you're working with, too. Thanks! Editor, AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes

Question: Can I cook slow cooker party meatballs a day ahead then just put slow cooker on low to reheat and serve the following day? Will they get mushy if left on low most of day?

As a single male, I have used frozen meatballs for years and my guests have enjoyed them at my parties. I have used a couple of jars of Alfredo sauce when on sale and it is a change of pace from the BBQ sauce.

I love using the frozen meatballs, typically I can purchase them for about 10 cents per meatball plus the sauces. I have used a couple of jars of Alfredo Sauces on Sales instead of the BBQ sauce for a change of pace. Just make sure you allow plenty of time if they are frozen. This is so simple even a single male can do this dish.

I have made these almost every Xmas. I made them once and from then on , I am asked to make them. Yes, they are from the frozen meatballs, but I am sure if you desire to make the meatballs ffrom stratch, they will be just as good. I like quick, so I use the frozen kind. Never have made them with BBQ sauce, but since I am doing them this Xmas, will try that. I am sure they will be good also. So simple to fix. Try them, you will like them.

make your own there are only real ingredients you put in not the junk they put in the frozen. Do you really want to eat more of that junk? Added sugar, salt and things you cannot pronounce or even know what the junk is. Fast food frozen is not real meat, IT IS MEAT BY PRODUCTS with added ????? who knows.

Packaged meatballs were a "no no" for me. I kept experimenting until I found a brand that was extraordinary. My life has become simplified. It was well worth the effort for this Italian gal. In my area where I live, the Shop-Rite brand is excellent. (North Jersey).

So disappointed! I was expecting an actual meatball recipe - not a recipe using frozen commercial meatballs. Finding really good meatballs is not an easy task, and I was hoping for a better solution. Booo!
