This is the same sauce recipe I use, but I make my own turkey meatballs. I haven’t had very good luck with the frozen meatballs; they are a little dry.

This recipe looks so delicious! I love cocktail meatballs and I really like how I can use leftover cranberry sauce in this recipe! (Or at least I think I can…) I’m going to try this one…thanks!

This is the greatest recipe for an easy dish to bring to holiday parties! Last winter I was pretty overwhelmed with our family’s social gatherings, and this ended up being the perfect go-to. It made my life so much easier and everyone loved them! (Well, except maybe my husband after the first 4 times I made them back to back, haha). Definitely going to hang on to this recipe.

I made up my own meatball recipe and used the sauce. Very good and very easy. Thanks!
