Frenzied SLPs Link Up: Quick and Easy Recipes

Today the Frenzied SLPs are linking up to bring you some of our favorite fun easy recipes for your frenzied days.  My recipe is less of a recipe and more of a cheat make shift meal but here goes.

For the days I have no time whatsoever to cook or days like the past weekend, where I spend hours shoveling and had little or no energy for anything else, my crock pot becomes my most favorite kitchen appliance.

Easy Peasy Crock Pot Meatball Subs:

1) bag of frozen meatballs
2) 1-2 jars of tomato sauce (depending on how much you like. We use 2.)
3)  provolone cheese (or cheese of your choice)
4)  Rolls

Directions:  Throw the bag of frozen meatballs into a crock pot (on top of a spoonful or two of tomato sauce), and cover with tomato sauce.  Set on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.  Once done, add cheese and meatballs to rolls and voila', you have an easy peasy meatball sub!

Tip:  We tend to make all the meatballs at once and just freeze smaller portions of what we have left so they too can be a quick meal at another time.

Sides:  We like to add a quick Ceasar salad with this as a side using 1 head of romaine lettuce, some chopped/slices black olives, shredded Parmesan cheese, and some Ceasar dressing.

And that's it!  A piping hot meal waiting for you when you are ready to sit down and eat!   

Do you have a favorite crock pot meal for your frenzied days?  Feel free to share below. I'm always looking for new recipes!!!

  1. I love a good meal cheat and my husband has requested that when his "time comes," he be buried with "his" crock pot! :)

  2. Have you ever tried Trader Joe's frozen meatballs? They are my favorite! Even Italian girls take short cuts in the kitchen when pressed for time! Adding this to my menu this week.

  3. I've never even thought of meatball sandwiches in the crock pot! I'm definitely going to do this!

  4. This sounds absolutely wonderful. My house full of men would love it!
