Make a double batch, they will disappear!
These are soooo good. I make them each time I attend a pot luck. My slow cooker comes home empty each time! How do I give this recipe six stars?
Quick and Easy and Tasty
I made this in my pressure cooker. First I sautéed celery onions carrots with red green yellow and orange peppers and threw in a few fresh cranberries. Then added the sauces, cooked a few mins for the sauces to melt together and the veggies to soften then added frozen(cooked) meatballs, used the rice (8 min) setting and they were awesome.
I've used jellied sauce and whole berry sauce. I like the cranberry mixed with the chili sauce better than grape and/or apple jelly. Simple and savory.
These are fantastic for Christmas parties, especially when you have a lot of other things to cook. Perfect slow cooker appetizer.
Awesome! Huge Hit! My Secret Party Addition...
I started making these a few years ago and they are a huge hit! I do not tell anybody that it is cranberry sauce (because I know some people would be like ewww) and you can't tell that it is cranberry sauce once it cooks down and the flavors mingle. I also like the chili sauce instead of the bbq because we usually also have smokies in bbq sauce and that would be over kill. My only tweak is I throw in a small can of diced pineapple.
