Ultimate MeatballsHeinzMeataball519Are you hosting a Christmas party or even a birthday party for that matter and are out of ideas of new recipes that everyone will enjoy?  I was recently introduced to the Ultimate Party Meatball Recipe.  I love new recipes!  My family loves meatballs!  We’ve had them in Spaghetti and in barbecue sauce in the Crockpot, but never with Chili Sauce and Cranberry Sauce.  The Ultimate Party Meatball Recipe is SO EASY!!!  Your guests will go gah-gah over them and the only problem you’ll have is running out of them quickly.

– (1) 14-ounce can Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce
– (1) 12-ounce bottle Heinz Chili Sauce
– (1) 2-pound bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-sized meatballs

The recipe is simple.  Combine the sauces in a large saucepan.  Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth.  Add the meatballs.  Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally.

Makes 30 appetizer servings.

Slow Cooker Preparation:  Place the meatballs in a slow cooker.  Combine sauces and p0ur over the meatballs.  Cover and cook for 4 hours in the HIGH setting.

You can find all kinds of information, including recipes, on the Ultimate Party Meatballs website
 I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Heinz and Ocean Spray and received the ingredients necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
