Cocktail Meatball Sauce

This is a family-favorite around our house. Chances are, if you go to SRBC, that you've had these. At lease once a month we have an "appetizer meal" which usually includes cocktail meatballs, wings, veggie or fruit tray and motzarella sticks. I love that this recipe feeds an army or a little army at least 3 times. ALDI meatballs taste good and are very inexpensive. Just noticed last week ALDI now carries cocktail sauce, so you could get all the ingredients there!

Cocktail Meatball Sauce

1 can jellied cranberry sauce
1 - 12 oz jar chili sauce
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs lemon juice

You can add a little garlic powder, horseradish or tabasco to taste. (For those of you that have eaten my version, I use about 1 tsp horseradish sauce.)

Stir over medium heat until cranberry sauce is melted. (I break mine up with a whisk in the can to help speed up the melting process.) Pour over meatballs and heat through.

This recipe cover 3-4 bags of meatballs or approximately 100! This can be used on cocktail weiners or keilbasa slices as well. The sauce freezes well, so you can use it for multiple occassions. The photo shows the meatballs in a crockpot. I have thrown the meatballs in frozen and cooked for a couple hours or if I'm in a hurry have baked them in the oven and thrown them in a crockpot to keep them warm while serving.
