Crockpot BBQ Meatballs

Unfortunately, those meatballs usually aren’t very diet-friendly and leave me feeling more guilty than satisfied! This light version of a fall favorite will satisfy that meatball craving without putting a dent in your diet!

    Can this recipe be prepared but not cooked? In other words, can you roll the meatballs and flash freeze and then defrost and put in the slow cooker?

    I made this today. It was a little sweet for me (probably because of the ketchup). Any suggestions for a less sweet sauce?
