Crockpot sweet and sour meatballs

So, you know how I said I never buy frozen meatballs... well.. I was walking into Walmart the other day and walked past Subway.. The smells just made me crave a meatball sandwich, and we had hoagies at home. So, I gave in and bought some frozen ones so I could easily make me a meatball sandwich for lunch, it was divine. Anyway, so I now have some store bought frozen meatballs in my freezer and I needed to use a few things in my fridge(pineapple and the sweet and sour sauce). So, I decided to throw it all in my crockpot and see how it all tasted. YUM YUM YUM! My pregnant body could hardly handle smelling it all day, I wanted to dive in! After my husband got home I was constantly asking him if he was hungry yet.. after the 3rd no.. I decided I was going to test them out. I ate 5 meatballs before we even ate. They were so yummy and super easy! Anyway, I love this sauce and have used it on chicken before but it was very good for this too, so I would recommend getting it if you can.
I have found it's cheapest at Walmart, if you can find it at yours! Anyway here is the recipe. I wish I got paid to advertise this sauce, but really.. I just like it! I also use their fajita sauce every now and then.

Crockpot Sweet and Sour Meatballs
frozen meatballs (as many as you need for your family)
1 bottle sweet and sour sauce (I prefer world harbors)
1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits, mostly drained
1/2 of green pepper diced
Garlic salt (to taste, I probably used a teaspoon, makes it a little more savory and not so sweet)
Hot cooked rice

Combine first 5 ingredients in a slow cooker and cook for 5-6 hours on low or until heated. Serve over hot cooked rice.

I have also fallen in love with crockpot liners. They are definitely a nice thing to have, but can be a little pricey. I think it's worth it, most of the time. :)
