These homemade meatballs are made in the crockpot, so easy, just put them in and walk away! Roll them up using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop, depending on how big you want them to be. Then place them in the crockpot.

You can certainly add other ingredients to these meatballs to make them perfect for your Dad, consider the following options:

  • Grated Onion – adds a delicious sweetness to the meatballs and can soften the flavour
  • Parmesan Cheese – a gently salty and nutty flavour, definitely add some if you plane to serve these meatballs with an Italian marinara sauce
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes – if your dad likes his food spicy, add some red pepper flakes, the more you add the spicier they will be!
  • Gluten-Free Breadcrumbs – you can always make this recipe gluten-free by substituting the breadcrumbs with a gluten-free variety
  • Ground Turkey – substitute the ground beef with ground turkey for a lighter meal option. Remember to adjust the cooking time accordingly
