Crockpot appetizers that are NOT bbq...

CarmenR | Dec 8, 2013 08:19 AM

I've got two crockpots that I'd like to use for our holiday party next weekend. They are both the normal crockpot size (neither are the small dip sized containers) and I have multiple requests for bbq pork ribs for one which I plan on making. Ive been searching the web but coming up empty with something for the second pot- everything seems to be some variation on a bbq sauce (ketchup based, bottled, vinegar based, whatever!) I'm a heavy crockpot user, but I can't really think of anything that's easy to eat while standing except meatballs which, again, are usually served with a spicy bbq-type sauce. I was thinking of making the meatballs outside the pot and making a mustard-based dipping sauce and just using the crock to keep them warm, but that kind of defeats the purpose (which is to try to make as much ahead without the stove or oven as possible.)

Any ideas, hounds?
