I was thinking about Crockpot Pork and Beans and how much I love that recipe, and suddenly the thought of using meatballs popped into my head. This wonderful recipe is the result. It's truly comforting, rich, and so easy. Just one note: this recipe is pretty sweet, with the baked beans and ketchup. You could add about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to temper that sweetness if you'd like.

What You'll Need

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup wild rice, rinsed
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans baked beans
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen wild rice meatballs
  • 1/2 cup water or beef broth

How to Make It

Combine all ingredients in 4-5 quart crockpot and mix gently to combine. Make sure wild rice is covered with liquid. Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours or until wild rice is tender but firm and meatballs are hot.
