Whether you make your own and freeze them, or just cut to the chase and buy them frozen, you'll never lack for meal ideas while you've got them on hand. They can be simmered in sauce, skewered for the grill, wrapped in a tortilla or even just served on a tray with toothpicks.
Your meal will eventually reach a safe temperature but in the meantime, many bacteria can create heat-stable toxins that will still make you sick. As long as they aren't frozen to begin with, your favorite Crock-Pot meatball recipe will work just fine and the end result will be a meal that's food safe.

You could also eat them as is, make meatball sandwiches with them, or serve them over rice. It will probably change the flavor slightly, so I can't say for sure what the results would be if you used a different creamed soup.
Frozen meatballs cook in an easy homemade sweet & sour sauce all day. In a small bowl add the beef broth, cream of mushroom soup, gravy packet contents, garlic powder, and water.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on LOW heat for 4-5 hours. The meatballs can be in there the entire 5-hour cook time, but just know that once you add the evaporated milk it's best to eat the meatballs soon after so you can maintain that smooth creamy gravy sauce.
Serve immediately over some cooked egg noodles or rice. Tip : If you want a really thick sauce then stir 1 tablespoon of cornstarch into the evaporated milk before adding it into the meatballs.
