I prepare these in a crockpot. I have served these twice: work party and for our fellowship hour at church. Huge hit with both! This recipe comes from Ocean Spray with my twist.

How to Make Ultimate Party Meatballs (Ocean Spray Twist)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl, mix thoroughly together cranberry sauce, chili sauce and garlic. You can use with or without cranberries.
  2. Place meatballs in crockpot.
  3. Pour sauce over meatballs.
  4. This step should be adjusted to your crockpot cooking time. This one I used a new crockpot and it only took 1 hour (and it was boiling!). COOK: 1-1.5 hours on high, stirring once or twice.
  5. Low for 1 hour - then warm.
  6. Leftovers: great for meatball sandwiches with left over pasta sauce &melted/unmelted mozzarella cheese! Great for the next day lunch box also.
  7. The twist is what the garlic brings to this recipe. One other spin I used was: 1 or 2 tablespoons of left over red pasta sauce (marinara, etc). It gives it a savory undertone.
