0 Recipe | "Easy Cranberry Meatball Appetizer" by Sue Ready

"Meatballs get a holiday makeover using jellied cranberries. Meatballs can be made with ground venison, ground chuck or hamburger. Using prepared meatballs from the frozen food section is a time saver. I used 2-24 oz. bags of pure Angus beef meatballs. The sauce is enough to cover 2 bags of meatballs." - Sue Ready
