1package of 28 Frozen Italian Meatballs
Green onions for garnish
In a small sauce pan, heat the Tennessee Whiskey over medium heat until reduced by ½ (no need to measure exactly - just eyeball it). Just fyi - this makes a smell in your house - but don’t skip this step - makes for flavor.
In a medium sized mixing bowl,whisk together all the ingredients except the meatballs.
Place meatballs into crock pot and pour the whisked sauce over the top. Mix again with a spoon to make sure all the meatballs are coated.
Heat crockpot on High for 4 hours or Low for 8. Serve on slider buns (we like to use the King's Hawaiian Rolls as buns). Garnish with chopped green onions.
Use the meatballs found on loaves and dishes for better taste
