Bavarian Meatballs

A unique twist on the traditional meatball sub.
A family favorite in my house, so easy
to make and so delish.

1 package ( 32 ounces ) frozen fully cooked meatballs
( I make my own meatballs a day or 2 a head of time and freeze them).

1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can ( 12 ounces ) beer or nonalcoholic beer
12 hoagie buns
3 cups shredded swiss cheese

In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the meatballs, onion,
brown sugar , onion soup mix and beer.
Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.

Place meatballs in each bun, sprinkle each sandwich
with 1/4 cup Swiss cheese. Place sandwiches on baking
sheet. Broil 4 - 6 in. from the heat for 2 - 3 minutes or
until cheese is melted.
