Slow Cooker Meatball Sliders

Whether you like these as meatball sliders or meatball subs, this quick and easy slow cooker meal will give you the perfect combination of savory and sweet. Cooking the cranberry sauce with the red pepper flakes and onion soup mix in the slow cookers for hours allow the flavors to come out even more and make them more pronounced.

As a reminder, be sure to check the cooking instructions for the frozen meatballs ahead of time. If you begin preheating the oven approximately 30 min prior to finishing the meatball sauce, your meatballs will be ready to serve as sliders right away. Enjoy!

I personally love toasting the bread with the provolone cheese so it melts perfectly for these sliders.
