Slow Cooker Sockarooni Meatball Subs with Horseradish Cheddar



It seems like forever ago I submitted a request to participate in Foodbuzz’s Family Bites, but this week is my turn for sharing what I made with the sauces Newman’s Own sent to me. Now that the recipes are up, I can share some of them with you.

I try not to take on too many offers for these kinds of things, but Paul Newman gave so much of himself to others, I thought it would be nice to give a little something in return.

I had a great time playing with products I’d never purchased before. Especially the zesty Sockarooni sauce, which I’ve been buying on a regular basis since.

A short and simple recipe, these subs make a great lunch.

Place the meatballs and sauce in a slow cooker. Turn the slow cooker to high and cook for 4 hours or until heated through.

Place the cheese and meatballs on warmed hotdog buns and top with diced onions or other condiments as desired.

Great idea for a simple meal! I don't nearly use my slow-cooker enough. I will have to look for this sauce :o)

I've never heard of Horseradish Cheddar. Sounds like I need a trip to Whole Foods, they have a nice variety. Thanks for an easy and tasty dinner idea Laura it sounds so good right now.

I have a few men in my life who would be VERY HAPPY if I served them some of these. Thanks for sharing such an easy and delicious idea for dinner Laura!

Love this simple recipe! I've never seen horseradish cheddar though. We don't have a lot of cheese selection around here. :(

That cheese sounds unusual...and the sandwich sounds like a good hearty meal. Love using the crock pot:) I'll have to try the P.N. sauces, because all I've ever tried are his salad dressings(which I really like).
Have a great weekend, Laura

Sue:)

Wow- that looks totally delicious! Have you ever tried a muffaletta? It's a New Orleans style sandwich and it's my absolute favorite!
