Slow Cooker Cheese Stuffed Meatballs w/Brown Gravy

Being a busy Mom, I use my slow cooker at every opportunity and am always looking for new slow cooker recipes that will be easy for me, and pleasing to both my son and I.  This recipe, adapted from two different recipes I found from an old Betty Crocker cook book.  I make the meatballs the night before to save time.  You could also make this using spaghetti sauce instead of the beef gravy.  I have tried both and both are equally delicious!


Today, I am sharing this with my favorite link up party, Fiesta Friday.  I hope the gang likes it just as much as we do!  Enjoy 🙂

Thanks for visiting!
