Favorite Ingredient Friday - Ultimate Party Meatballs
Posted Jun 13 2009 12:25am
For Thanksgiving we went over to one of Joe's co-worker's house. I wanted something simple, quick and tasty to bring over. There was going to be plenty of the traditional Thanksgiving food, so I wanted something just a little bit different too.
Thanks to Mom Central I found the perfect recipe from Ultimate Party Meatballs. The website offers recipes, entertainment tips, party enhancements and an ultimate sweepstakes (grand prize winner wins $3,000 in gift cards and 20 second prize winners will receive a Rival 4 Qt Crockpot.)
1. 1 16-ounce can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce 2. 1 12-ounce bottle Heinz® Chili Sauce 3. 1 2-pound bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-size meatballs (about 30)
Directions: 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. Slow Cooker: Place meatballs in a slow cooker. Combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on high.
These were very delicious! It had the perfect combination of flavors...We doubled the recipe (since there were 12 adults) and it's a good thing we did, we hardly had any leftover to take home. I heard quite a few people exclaim how tasty they were, and were surprised at the 2 sauce ingredients. Needless to say - these were a big hit!
I now have a new "go-to" recipe when I need to bring a dish somewhere; I plan on bringing these to Bunco in a couple of weeks too.
