Slow Cooking Thursday!

All my slow cooking recipes are now online and starting today, I will add all the recipes shared weekly to my online site too. So if you're wanting to find ALL the slow cooked recipes that have been shared since the first SLOW COOKING THURSDAY, here is the link for you.

Don't forget to add your name to Mr Linky and a link back to your SCT post so others can come by and see your recipe too.

As always, share your slow cooking recipes but if you REALLY REALLY don't have one and still want to participate, then you can share any kind of recipe.

Snappy Meatball Heroes

1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
1 lb extra lean ground beef
8 oz ground turkey
1/2 c. dry bread crumbs
1/3 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 can (15oz) tomato sauce
1/4 c. dry red wine
6-8 hoagie rolls, split and warmed

In large bowl, beat egg with salt, seasoning, red pepper flakes and garlic. Add chopped onion, beef, turkey, crumbs and parmesan cheese; mix well. Shape into 1-1/2" balls. Place meatballs in 5 qt or larger slow cooker.

In same bowl, mix tomato sauce and wine; pour over meatballs. Cover and cook at low setting until meatballs are no longer pink in middle, cut to test (5-6 hours).

Carefully lift meatballs from cooker and place 3-4 in each split roll; moisten with a little sauce from cooker. If desired add condiments (pepper strips, slices mozzarella cheese, olives, etc) to each sandwich. Makes 6-8 servings.
