Take Ultimate Party Meatballs to Your Next Holiday Gathering!

I used to dread being asked to take a dish to a party because I am so bad at cooking. I never knew what to make… until I discovered the recipe for Ultimate Party Meatballs! With only three ingredients, it is really easy to make. Best of all, every time I bring my meatballs someplace, people absolutely love them! I’ve been making this recipe for several years, but was pleased to find out that Heinz and Ocean Spray have now set up a website devoted to the Ultimate Party Meatballs! Go to to find recipes, entertaining tips, party enhancements, and even enter a giveaway for up to $3,000! (Deadline: February 15, 2010)

And now, without further delay, here is the recipe for the fabulous Ultimate Party Meatballs!

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.

My favorite way to make this recipe is in the slow cooker. It seems to make them extra flavorful! To do this: Place meatballs in a slow cooker. Combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH.

It can’t get much easier than that! Even a kitchen-averse person like me can make this dish and impress all her friends! I’ve even made this recipe when I didn’t have a party to go to because my family likes it so much. I hope you’ll give it a try!

DISCOSURE: 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.
