Please Don’t Heat Up the Kitchen New Recipe Challenge: BBQ Comfort Meatballs for the Crock Pot

Please Don't Heat Up the Kitchen New Recipe Challenge

Erm.  When adapting a recipe for the slow cooker, please remember that 1) if it is a meatball recipe 2) and if the meatball mixture is kinda “loose” when formed into balls and that you are supposed to chill them for a bit to 3) follow those directions or possibly even freeze the mixture after portioning into balls for longer.

Basically it turned into clumpy meaty BBQ meat sauce.  That is perfectly okay.  But it is not the delightful round bally goodness I had intended.  When I first made these for the Spring Cleaning New Recipe Challenge, I decided I needed to double the sauce.  Which I did.  Which helped.

Otherwise, I followed the meatball mixture recipe.

And here was Muffin’s plate.

Still tasty.  Still Muffin Approved.  Just…not as I had hoped.

Oh well.  I will attempt another attempt at another time.

If you wish to follow my original post and how I made it originally in the oven with ingredients, you can find it here.  Of course, the place where I found the recipe was Pioneer Woman.

In other news, the leftover English cucumber slices were still yummy.

Muffin Approved

Not to be a Negative Nellie, but have you had any recipe failures (for adaptations or any other reasons)?
