I like to make my own meatballs, and freeze them ahead of time for this recipe! Saves on very little prep time! Holidays are always a good time of the year to serve Meatballs!
- Place mushrooms, gravy, onions, Worcestershire sauce, allspice and nutmeg in a 6-Quart slow cooker. Stir well.
- Add meatballs and mix to incorporate well into the sauce.
- Cover and Cook on Low for 6 hours.
- Temper the sour cream: Place 1 cup of sour cream in a small bowl. Add 3 T. of the hot gravy from the slow cooker and stir well. Repeat with 3 more T. of gravy. Transfer sour cream mixture into slow cooker and stir just until combined.
- Serve meatballs over egg noodles or with a side of Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes.
Note: You can make your own meatballs with ground beef or ground turkey if you desire. Also gravy is plentiful! YUM!

What can I substitute for the Sour Cream? Heavy Cream?
Dave, you can substitute yogurt for the sour cream, and evaporated milk for the heavy cream. Hope this helps! Just know it will not be as creamy. 🙂
Super easy , family loved it!
Can you tell me what is in the allspice. I googled it but it gave me cinnamon/cloves/nutmeg…is this correct?
Thank-you do much!
Hi Heidi! Thanks for your question. Here is a link to the Allspice that I use. http://amzn.to/1HzPEOq Allspice comes from the dried fruit of a tree. If you do not have any, you can substitute equal parts of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
I hope this helps!

Do you need to brown the meat balls before putting them in the crock pot?
Peg you do not need to brown the meatballs, but I like to brown the meatballs, because I like the added flavor from browning the meat. Thank you for the question, and Happy Crocking!
If I make the meatballs fresh .. Should I bake them or Fry them? And What size should I make them ?
