If you’re not aware by now that pumpkin spice is a big deal in the fall, you’re probably not on the internet and won’t see this anyway. Those who are aware either love the influx or hate it. Each year we see new products flavored with pumpkin spice, from cereal to butter. While I’m a fan of the flavor, I do believe it can go too far at times. Meatballs, for example, should not be infused with this particular flavor. Yet, that’s exactly what we decided to try doing.

Try it Yourself
- 1 package pre-cooked meatballs
- ground cinnamon
- ground cloves
- corn starch
- pumpkin spice
- brown sugar
Open the bag of meatballs and pour them into a crockpot. Add in a splash of water and turn the heat to high. Then, add as much or as little as you’d like of the remaining ingredients. Put the cover on and let sit for 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe for Disaster
You may be wondering why there are no measurements listed on this recipe. Well, that’s because we didn’t use any, so how much you use of each is entirely up to you. This was an experiment for us, so it only makes sense that it should be for you as well. However, I will give you the following piece of advice: leave out the cinnamon and the pumpkin spice.
Honestly, these meatballs really weren’t all that bad. They weren’t exactly good either, though. We tried dipping them in BBQ sauce, which tasted decent enough and led us to adding some to the crockpot so it would blend in. While I wouldn’t make these again, they were enjoyable enough that we didn’t throw them away.
It’s up to you if you’d like to try them for yourself. Maybe you’d like to put your own twist on them. If you do, let us know what you tried and what you thought of them.
