Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I remember as a kid, sweet and sour meatballs being one of my favorite dinners!  My mom made them with grape jelly and bbq sauce.  There are so many different ways to make them, but this is my favorite!

The Stars of the Show:

A bottle of chili sauce and a can of jellied cranberry sauce.

And a package of frozen meatballs.  

Of course you can make your own meatballs, but for this recipe I take the help from the store and buy them pre-made.  

Note: you do not want to use Italian meatballs for this.  While they are delicious, they have seasonings in them that will not go well with the sweet and sour sauce.  I use either Swedish or Homestyle meatballs.

You can serve these meatballs as appetizers or a meal with rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1 jar chili sauce
1 can jellied cranberry sauce
1 pkg. frozen meatballs (Swedish or Homestyle)

Mix the chili sauce and cranberry sauce to combine.  Put meatballs in a crockpot.  Pour the sauce over the meatballs and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Note:  You do not need to thaw the meatballs before adding them to the crock pot.
