The slow cooker makes these tasty sweet-sour appetizer meatballs easy to prepare and serve.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 lb. mild pork sausage (or use all beef)
- 2 cups soft bread crumbs
- 2 eggs

- 2 tbsp. fresh minced parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
- 1 (12 oz) jar apricot preserves
- 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
Combine beef, sausage, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, parsley, salt, and garlic salt; blend gently then shape with hands to form small meatballs.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours.
Can be served over rice as a main dish or as an appetizer with toothpicks.
