Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

This post may include affiliate links, you can read my Privacy Policy.

My family absolutely loves meatballs and it’s something that I hardly ever make. However, I came across a video on stuffed meatballs and I was drooling! They looked amazing, so I decided to do my own spin on them.

I’m so happy I decided to make these as they were absolutely delicious. Everyone in my family loved them (even my picky six-year-old).

All you mama’s out there know that’s a HUGE win!

You’ll notice that this recipe takes a lot of ingredients, so make you check Ibotta for any discounts. If you aren’t familiar with Ibotta, it’s a FREE app that gives you rebates on groceries. It’s pretty awesome!
