Today is all about cooking Low & Slow.

This of course, prompted me to pull out the crockpot and whip up a batch of these delicious Asiago Meatballs. They are a favorite around our house as an appetizer, snack or even as a main dish.

Our favorite part about these meatballs, is they can be changed up with herbs and spices to change flavor and taste. This makes them pretty versatile and can be used for almost any event.

Make the recipe and add a teaspoon or so of the listed items to the sauce, before adding the meatballs.

 

  • Mexican – Use jalapeno’s and cilantro.
  • Italian – Use oregano, basil, thyme.
  • French – Use bay leaf, parsley and thyme.
  • Asian – Cumin, Five Spice and/or Tumeric
  • Portuguese – Garlic, Coriander and Parsley. Add some chopped Chorizo… amazing!

The other part that is great about this dish, is simply that it can cook all day and you have the makings for a great after school snack or even the beginning of a great dinner. We love to serve these cheesy Asiago Meatballs over pasta (add 1 cup of heavy cream and ¼ cup of butter to sauce before adding meatballs) or brown rice.

As an appetizer, they go fast! You can either put them out on a platter with toothpicks or leave them in a small crockpot with a jar of toothpicks next to the crockpot. People love them, and might even wish to put a few on their plate at a time, so make sure you have a large serving spoon nearby too.

Meatballs are always great as an appetizer. I love asiago cheese, and these sound like they would be amazing. I liked that you included the different spices and ingredients to add different flavors. I will have to try some of these out!
