"Recipe's similar to this one have been circulating for years. These are very good but I remember when I was little my mother would throw parties for her friends and make a similar recipe that called for grape jelly instead of the cranberry sauce. So, I just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone looking to experiment. Try using a different sweet element. I'm thinking of trying blackberry jelly w/ lime juice instead of the lemon juice. Experiment and find what flavor you like best. Have fun!"- kcarterd84
Top-ranked recipe named "Cranberry Cocktail Meatballs"
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, cornflake crumbs, parsley, eggs, ketchup, onion, soy sauce, garlic and pepper. Mix well and form into small balls, from 1/2" to 3/4" in diameter. Place in a large sheetpan in a single layer. Heat oven to 300 F and bake for 30-45 min, depending on the size of the meatballs. Drain grease from pan when done and transfer meatballs to a crockpot..
While meatballs are cooking, combine cranberry sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar and lemon juice in a large sauce pan. Cook stirring over medium heat until smooth. Pour hot sauce over meatballs in the crockpot, stirring occasionally. Keep warm on low in the crockpot until serving time.
SaraC25 2 months agoI used 1 lb Turkey and 1 lb Beef and Planko instead of corn chips. Thumbs up form all
Lcrespy 11 month agoMade these for my daughter's birthday party and everyone LOVED them! I used 3.25 lbs of beef so I increased the meatball ingredients by a little more than half and doubled the sauce. I ended up with 196 3/4 inch meatballs (perfect size to pop in your mouth without cutting). while I agree could use frozen, the meatballs were really good and given that the sauce is so easy why cut corners to manage time. Make them ahead and freeze if needed they are much tastier than the frozen ones
bertjones 1 year agoVery good. Nice change of pace from the typical grape jelly recipe.

Coriejeanne 1 year agoI make this recipe w/ Frozen Swedish meatballs ( I personality think it tastes better then the frozen Italian ones w/this sauce) and I only add a jar or chili sauce and a can of cranberry sauce simple easy and delicious!!
