0 min
0 min
This dish can be an appetizer or a full coarse meal. This does has beer in it. If you don't want the beer in it use beef broth. You can make and brown your own meatballs and then use them instead of packaged meatballs. Serves 12.


1 package (38 ounces) frozen cooked Italian meatballs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can (12 ounces) lite beer or reduced sodium beef broth
12 hoagie buns, split
3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese


Place in slow cooker, combine the meatballs, onion, brown sugar, soup mix, and beer. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours or until heated through. Serve with toothpicks for an appetizer. For the sandwiches, place six meatballs on each bun bottom. Sprinkle each sandwich with 1/4 cup cheese. Place on baking sheets. Broil 4-6 from heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Replace bun tops.
