Cocktail Meatballs (Crock Pot)

These are always a hit at parties and they take no time to prepare. Just keep them simmering in a crock all during the party and you’ll see that they disappear pretty quickly. I like to serve them for dinner sometimes – make a salad on the side and you don’t have to wait for a party to enjoy these little stars !

22 oz. frozen cocktail meatballs
2 cans fat free beef gravy (sometimes I use one that has onions in it)
salt and pepper to taste
½ t garlic powder
½ t onion powder

Mix gravy and spices. Defrost meatballs in the microwave or in a pan on the stove. Place meatballs in the crock and pour over the gravy. Cover and cook on high until heated through (about one hour). Then move to the low heat setting and you can keep these going another 3 hours while people pick at them.

Salisbury Steak

This is a favorite of frozen dinner makers and I still remember the taste of good old Swanson TV Dinner Salisbury Steak. This one is much better ! The recipe is easy to make and gives you a great result time in and time out. Try serving with 1/2 c mashed potatoes and some Roasted Grape Tomatoes and you meal comes in under 400 calories !
