Simple Solutions for Your Guests this Holiday

What does Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce and Heinz Tomato Sauce have in common?

These two tasty ingredients are key to the recipe for Ultimate Party Meatballs, a great appetizer solution for this holiday party.

Thanks to Mom Central, our family had the opportunity to make Ultimate Party Meatballs for Thanksgiving. There are two ways of making this delicious concoction, on the stove top or in the crock pot. I chose to cook these in the crock pot, as my stove was cramped enough with all of the other holiday meal components. Plus, I love foods that cook themselves and require little to no effort during a large celebration like Thanksgiving.

The kids and the adults both enjoyed the smooth taste of the sauce, and the meatballs were a total hit! So, whether you're having friends over to watch the big game, or your extended family over to celebrate Hanukkah or Christmas, these Ultimate Meatballs are sure to become a family favorite!

Here's the recipe- Enjoy!


* 1 14-ounce can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
* 1 12-ounce bottle Heinz® Chili Sauce
* 1 2-pound bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-size meatballs


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.

Makes 30 appetizer servings.

Slow cooker Preparation: Place meatballs in a slow cooker. Combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH.
