Crockpot Honey and Garlic Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles

February 21, 2018 (Last updated January 7, 2022) · Nicole Triebe

Meatballs are one of my go-to weeknight meals.  There are so many variations that you can make, you’ll never get sick of them!  What’s even better, these are crockpot meatballs, so they’re even easier to prepare!  I teamed up with Sir Kensington’s to make these delicious honey garlic meatballs.  Their ketchup is the perfect addition to these little bites.  All of Sir Kensington’s condiments are non-GMO, and they don’t use high fructose corn syrup like other ketchup brands, so you can feel good about what you’re eating.  They are also one of the few brands that has tomatoes as our first ingredient!  They’re perfect for a dinner, or even a quick appetizer for your next party!

This post is sponsored by Sir Kensington’s but as always, my opinions are my own.

    These so delicious, sticky and inviting. All that slow cooking making the house smell gorgeous. I’d make double and feel happy all day knowing I’d have the best quick after work dinner waiting for me.

    Such a delicious meal and well balanced with the zucchini noodles, these meatballs look so delicious, I tend to (over)use hoisin sauce a lot, so good!
