Easy Slow Cooker Meatball Soup is a delicious recipe for a cold day! With frozen meatballs, beans, and veggies, this will be a huge hit!
Crockpot Meatball Soup
Soup is the perfect meal when you need something to warm you from the inside on a cold day. This Slow Cooker Meatball Soup is one of those delicious and easy recipes that you can make whenever you need that cozy feeling.
There are lots of crockpot meatball soup recipes around, but this one has beans, corn, and carrots, so it’s a more hearty meal. I also don’t like to specify the beans, so make sure to pick the ones you love the most! I am a fan of the dark red kidney beans because I like that additional texture, but you can go for black beans, white beans, or pinto beans as well. Whatever you have on-hand.
This dinner recipe is naturally gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free (if you omit the parmesan cheese). You can turn it into a vegetarian option if you use vegetable broth instead of beef broth and choose frozen vegetarian premade meatballs.
If you are looking to make this a full meal for the whole family, you can stretch it a little further by adding chopped onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, or some additional beans and corn. There is a lot that you can tinker with here!
Slow cooking is the way to go on long days, so this easy dump-and-go recipe is a tasty way to put together a delicious meal. With simple ingredients that you can pick up at almost any grocery store, this is sure to become a family favorite!
Meatball Soup Recipe
How To Make:
1 lb meatballs, frozen, pre-cooked
19 oz mixed beans, canned (containing any beans you choose, drained and rinsed)
2 carrots, sliced into medallions
1 cup corn, frozen
28 oz diced tomatoes, canned
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
6 cups beef broth
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (garnish)
Pull out a 5 or 6-quart slow cooker, whatever you have on-hand. Chop your carrots into round medallions and set them aside.
Place the frozen meatballs in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the beans, carrots, corn, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and a few shakes of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Pour your beef broth over all of it and stir, making sure the meatballs stay on the bottom.
Cook on low heat for 5 – 6 hours or on high heat for 3 – 4 hours, making sure that your carrots are tender and your meatballs are heated completely before serving.
Soup always tastes better the longer you leave it, so I highly suggest going with the longer heating times vs. the shorter to let the soup form fully.
Once your hearty soup is ready, spoon it into serving bowls and garnish each with shredded parmesan cheese. Serve with some nice crusty bread or garlic bread on the side and enjoy!
What Meatballs Should I Use For This Slow Cooker Meal?
The great thing about this simple recipe is that you can use whatever flavorful meatballs you have on-hand. This recipe calls for frozen meatballs, but you can also use homemade meatballs that you’ve frozen, turkey meatballs, Italian meatballs, mini meatballs, or any family favorites. If you are using ground beef or ground turkey meatballs that have not been frozen, note that they may take on a slightly looser consistency with the long cooking time.
Can I Freeze This Amazing Soup?
Yes! This is one of the meatball recipes that you can easily freeze. Allow your slow cooker soup to cool to room temperature. Portion the soup into individual servings in freezer-safe containers and freeze. For best results, thaw and eat this delicious recipe within 3 months.
