Saucy Meatballs

I made these to snack on from the crock-pot on Christmas day. These would be a great appetizer for a party. I adapted these recipes a little, using 3 pounds of ground meat for lots of meatballs, and kept them warm in the crock-pot. We loved them!

2 cups ketchup

1/2 cup white vinegar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 dash garlic powder

3 pounds fully cooked meatballs (recipe below)

In a deep sauce pan, combine the first nine ingredients, Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes. Add meatballs and sauce to a crock-pot and keep warm on a low/warm setting to serve.
