Sherry's notes for this recipe:
Another recipe I got from my sister...she usually makes this at our family gatherings. I like to make it for New Years.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Combine sauces in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Add thawed meatballs. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally. If you have more time you can cook them in a slow cooker, just combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH.
I sometimes use the Little Smokies in place of the meatballs. Both ways are delicious....

Your welcome Kellie! :) Also, you can use grape jelly instead of the cranberry sauce!

I love that recipe, Sherry. That's the second meatball recipe I've seen with jelly as a starter for the sauce. Check out my Mamma Mia Meatballs, it starts with hot pepper jelly.
