Rainy Sunday get together, Kentucky Derby, Super Bowl: On more than one occasion, I find myself searching desperately for party appetizer recipes. More importantly, I want quick fix easy appetizer recipes that will let me enjoy my weekend. I’ve been convinced that these make ahead appetizers don’t exist. That is, I didn’t think the best appetizer recipes for my slow cooker were free and available online, until AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes enlightened me.

Our sister site, AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes.com, has generously provided collections of the best appetizer and chili recipes to be made in slow cookers.

And if you love chili as much as I do, you will also love 9 Easy Slow Cooker Chili Recipes.

Easy slow cooker appetizers recipes are ideal for your busy schedule–or when you’re feeling especially lazy. Add ingredients to your slow cooker, sit back, and let the cooker do all of the work!

Recipe: Beer Meatballs

Beet Meatballs

Cheap ground beef and bread crumbs make a solid meatball. Add vegetable juice and onions for nutrition; spicy horseradish and hot sauce for a kick; and your favorite beer, and you’ve got a winning meatball recipe! This is the champ of easy appetizer recipes because it contains in a single slow cooker every ingredient that I love to eat while watching a big sports event or catching up on gossip with my friends.

To prepare, after cooking the meatballs and simmering them in your sauce, place all of the ingredients in a slow cooker to cook for several hours. Anywhere between 3 to 6 hours is satisfactory. AND this recipe is very flexible. Adjust the amount of horseradish and hot sauce going in to your liking. Be careful! Your party guests may not be as spice-tolerant with appetizer party recipes as you think!
