Cajun Meatballs

These would be a great appetizer for your holiday parties. Double the recipe (or maybe even triple) for a 3 quart slow cooker.

Cajun meatballs
1 pound lean ground beef
1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup stuffing cubes
1 egg
1/2 cup barbeque sauce
1/2 cup sugar free peach preserves

In a large bowl, mix thoroughly the ground beef, hot pepper sauce, Cajun seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, onion, bread crumbs, milk, and egg. Form the mixture into golf ball sized meatballs and brown in medium skillet; drain fat. Place meatballs in 1.5 quart slow cooker. Combine the barbeque sauce and peach preserves and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 1-2 hours. When meatballs are done, place in a serving dish and cover with the barbeque sauce mixture. Toss to coat.
