We were thinking about crockpot pork and beans and how much we love that recipe, and suddenly the thought of using meatballs popped into our 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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in 4 to 5 quart crockpot and mix gently to combine. Make sure wild rice is covered with liquid.

  3. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 9 hours or until wild rice is tender but firm and meatballs are hot.
