Fall is FINALLY in the air here in Arizona so cooler weather means crock pot season! My kids are always heavy on the meatballs when I make a pasta dish so to mix things up, I decided to try a new spin on the standard red sauce meatballs and try them Hawaiian style.
Wouldn’t you know it? All 4 of my kids scarfed it down… it is rare that they ALL love something so much so this meal is being added into our monthly rotation, for sure! And not only our monthly rotation but all winter long as this was just too easy not to make again. For our upcoming game nights, this recipe will be our go-to. Phew!
You know we are big fans of Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces and this Hawaiian Pork flavor has all us, “Mmmmm!” With our winter sports for my daughters (soccer) having already started on top of my sons football season, Campbell’s Sauces are a great because they cook a real meal for me lickity split, especially during the weekday madness that is school/homework/sports/church activities/etc.! Because the meatballs for this recipe came in a bag and there was no handling of meat, I let my 6-year old daughter pour the meatballs directly from the bag into the crockpot then the Hawaiian Pork sauce over the meatballs. She was able (with supervision) to turn on the crock pot and set the lid on. These sauce packers are really THAT easy to use, you just need a few minutes!
Besides every day meals, CSCS are awesome for game day gathering with friends. Meals with Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces are delicious and so easy to make… I’m thinking tacos, loaded nachos or sliders for a tailgate party! Yum. Take the Game Day Freat, Every Day Easy Challenge and experience it for yourself. Be sure to try the other flavorful sauces like Tavern Style Pot Roast, Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork, Beef Stew, Southern BBQ, Sweet Korean BBQ and of course Hawaiian Pork.
