Ultimate Party Meatballs

Having friends over to watch a game? Hosting a dinner? With just three ingredients,
Ultimate Party Meatballs are bound to be a hit with your guests.

Now that we are in the middle of the holiday party season, I wanted to take a minute to share a super easy holiday party recipe with you. I recently got the chance to try this recipe and first I couldn’t have had an easier recipe to make. Look at this!

Ultimate Party Meatballs
· 1 16-ounce can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
· 1 12-ounce bottle Heinz® Chili Sauce
· 1 2-pound bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-size meatballs
Combine sauces in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Add meatballs. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally.
Makes 30 appetizer servings.
Slow cooker Preparation: Place meatballs in a slow cooker. Combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH.

I popped the meatballs into my mini-crock pot (mentioned in the power cord post) and let that go while I worked on getting the rest of our dinner done. By the time our guests had arrived I had a tasty appetizer that took me no time at all!
Then I hopped over to and found a bunch more recipes that I can’t wait to try.
