Back in the 60's our gas company put on what they called their Holiday Cooking show. This is adapted from one of those shows. We tried it that holiday season and it's been on our tables ever since. This is one of those recipes that become a tradition.

How to Make CRANBERRY MEATBALLS

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all meatball ingredients and mix well. Form into walnut size balls. Place single layer in a 9"x13" pan or baking dish. It will be full.
  2. Place all sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until melted, stirring to combined.
  3. Pour sauce over meatballs and place in a preheated 350* oven UNCOVERED for 45 min.
  4. NOTE: These are wonderfull to make ahead and reheat or freeze after they are cooked. You can make small meatballs and serve with toothpicks at a party or just make the meatballs and use with your own spaghetti sauce or gravy. I'd give them 10 stars.
