These meatballs are just so great to make for a crowd since there really isn't any prep work at all. Depending on the size of the group I'm serving, I might even double the recipe. Such a nice change from the barbeque meatballs that are served all the time. The cranberry flavor kind of gives it a holiday feel, but they would be great any time of the year!

Cocktail meatballs are a great party food. They are always a hit. Most grocery stores sell big bags in frozen foods. I prefer making the meatballs myself. I like the ingredients for the sauce. They work well together and don't take a lot of effort. That's nice when you have a lot of food to fix.

This looks like it would've been absolutely amazing for our Christmas Feast coming up, however we don't know where to buy frozen meatballs, so we'll probably have to make it ourselves. Sadly we already went shopping, so this will have to wait till New Years when we can go shopping again.
