Crock Pot Buffalo Honey Meatballs

Adapted from Carlsbad Cravings. I printed this out and the website didn't print.If I was guessing, I would say it came from the Austin American Statesman. I love crock pot meals and this one is easy and only takes 2 hours in the crock pot. I cut everything in 1/2 for just two people.
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 eggs
22 saltine crackers, crushed
1/3 cup minced onion
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Honey Buffalo Sauce
1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot Original Sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon melted butter
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Set aside.             2. In a large bowl, add eggs and whisk. Add the remaining Meatball Ingredients and mix until well combined. Roll the mixture into the meatball size you prefer and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes until just browned.
3. While meat cooks, add the Honey Buffalo Sauce ingredients to a small bowl and whisk.
4. Line the bottom of your slow cooker with the cooked meatballs and drizzle with some of the Honey Buffalo Sauce. Then throw in the remaining meatballs and the remainder of the sauce. Printable VersionIf you half the recipe, all the meatballs will fit in a single layer.
