  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until meatballs are heated through; about 15 minutes for frozen.
  4. Remove cover and continue to cook for several minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced and completely coating the meatballs.
  5. Serve on their own as an appetizer, or as a main dish over rice.
  6. For slow cooker method, place meatballs in the slow cooker and pour sauces over. Stir ingredients together and cook on low for a few hours or until ready to serve.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat 4 eggs with a fork until the yolk and white are well mixed.
  3. Add 4 tablespoons of melted margarine or butter.
  4. Stir filling into eggs, blend with a fork until well mixed.
  5. Pour into the pie shells.
  6. Bake at 300 degrees for 50 minutes.
