  • Bake: 180 minutes
  • Stand: 10 minutes
  • Serves: 12

Ingredients & Directions

  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained
  • 1 pouch (13 ounces) Campbell's® Tavern Style Pot Roast
  • 2 packages (16 ounces each) bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 2 packages (15 ounces each) Pepperidge Farm® Wheat Slider Buns
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves

Stir the tomatoes and sauce in a 6-quart slow cooker.

Thoroughly mix the sausage and bread crumbs in a large bowl.  Shape the sausage mixture into 24 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs.  Add the meatballs to the cooker and stir to coat.

Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or until the meatballs are cooked through.  Turn off the cooker and let stand for 10 minutes or until the sauce is slightly thickened.

Layer each bun with about 1 ½ tablespoons cheese, 1 meatball and about 1 tablespoon sauce mixture.  Top with the basil.
