  1. Add the frozen meatballs to the slow cooker.
  2. Add jar of Franks Sweet & Smoky BBQ Kraut, 1 cup BBQ sauce and stir.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Stir occasionally so the meatballs won't burn or become dry.
  4. Serve as an appetizer with toothpicks or as dinner on top of mashed potatoes. You can also serve on a slider or hoagie bun as a tasty sandwich!
  5. If serving as an appetizer, meatballs can be kept on the “warm” setting for 1-2 hours (stirring occasionally).
  6. Note:
    1. You can substitute Frank's Sweet & Smoky BBQ Kraut with regular Frank's Quality Kraut. Use 1/2 a 32 oz. jar, or 1 14 oz. can, whatever you prefer!
    2. If using regular Frank's Quality Kraut, make sure to add an additional cup of BBQ sauce.
