Holiday Cranberry Meatball Recipe


Holiday Cranberry Meatballs are perfect to serve at your next Christmas open house or New Year’s cocktail party. They will most likely be the hit of the party, and none of the guests will have a clue that only 10 minutes hands-on time were spent on this delicious appetizer. You don’t have to reserve this recipe just for holiday parties, however; they’re also great for Superbowl and other informal get-togethers.

Make sure you have plenty of meatballs in the freezer from the Basic Meatball Module. These can be made months ahead, so all you have to do for the party is mix four readily available ingredients from your pantry shelf, pour the mixture over the meatballs which you’ve put in the slow cooker, and let them cook for a couple of hours. Could anything be easier? They can also be baked in the oven if you prefer.

Just a note: Please don’t be tempted to use those store-bought, rubbery textured frozen so-called meatballs; they are only about half meat and the rest is filler and textured vegetable protein (with a few preservatives thrown in). I’ve noticed that some brands are now stressing the fact that they are organic; there are lots of “organic” things that I consider inedible (i.e., just because cow manure is organic doesn’t mean I’m going to eat it!). If organic is important to you, use organic ingredients when you make your meatball module.
