Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Sauce Ingredients
2 small cans tomato sauce
1/4 c Worcestershire sauce
1/2 chopped onion
1 tbs dried parsley
1/2 c sugar
Mix all sauce ingredients in bowl; set aside.

Meatball Ingredients
2.5 lb ground turkey or beef
1/2 chopped onion
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c (or more if needed), quick oatmeal (NOT instant)
1 tsp garlic pepper
1/3 of the sauce mixture above
1 can chicken broth

In another bowl, add ground beef, 1/2 chopped onion, eggs, oatmeal, garlic pepper, and 1/3 of the sauce mixture. Mix together well. Roll into meatballs. Put in crockpot adding a can of chicken broth on top to cover.  Cook on  high 4-5 hours. Drain and pour sauce on top, cooking for an additional 2 hours on low. Reserve some sauce for adding when served.

(The oatmeal disappears, is healthy, and you can't taste it.)

NOTE:  Serve what you would like to that day and freeze the others in freezer bags for a quick reheat meal another day.  I like these served over egg noodles.
