These slow cooker meatballs are so delicious and healthy.
The original recipe is from Eatwell101 and I made a few modifications by using a different type of ground meat and adding mushrooms to our dish.
My husband and I have been trying to do better with our eating habits and we started KETO this past week. He did Atkins years ago and loved it and KETO is very similar to Atkins. The fact that he can have cheese is a plus for him.
Having my 10 month old and trying to cook is a challenge, so when I find crock pot meals like this I jump on them.
The prep time for this dish is literally 10 minutes and it cooks in the slow cooker for 4 hours. Easiest dinner ever!
What I love about this dish is that it is hearty, filling, delicious and good for us.
