Sweet and savory with a touch of spicy. This flavor threesome makes a mighty meatball!
This keto sweet and savory party meatball Crockpot slow-cooker recipe is the perfect party pleaser. Kiddos and grownups both dig ’em! Best of all, you can make the meatballs ahead of time and focus on other tasks while they simmer in the slow cooker awaiting their big debut.
My five-year-old ate 15 of these meatballs in a single sitting before I had to cut her off. 😬
No joke! Double the recipe batch if you’re serving a crowd. Trust me, you’ll be everybody’s BFF if you do. Seriously, who doesn’t love a good meatball?

- Or you could also try popular AlternaSweets, Sweet & Smokey BBQ Sauce. It’s sweetened with both stevia and erythritol and has 4 net carbs per serving.
