$5 Dinners - Slow Cooker Meatball and Gray Sandwiches

WinCo $5 Bargain Meals - all ingredients purchased at WinCo Foods
I am happy to participate in the $5dollar dinners Bargain Meal of the Week.

Slow Cooker Meatball and Gravy Sandwiches (serves 4)

I would suggest to double this recipe since you are going to use the slow cooker, serve the leftovers with potatoes.

1 medium onions, sliced ($.54)
1 packages (12 ounces each) frozen cooked Italian-style meatballs (Amour 16oz package; $1.74 for 12 oz)
1 jars (12 ounces each) beef gravy ($1.18)
4 hoagie buns (about 7 inches long)  (package of 6 is $1.18, use 4 is $.79)

1. Place onions in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Add frozen meatballs and gravy.
2. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
3. Cut hoagie buns horizontally almost in half. Place 6 meatballs in each bun. Top with gravy. 
*I would add a little Monterrey Jack Cheese.

Total $4.22

Serve with a mixed greens salad and fresh fruit for about $1 more.
