You’ve never seen meatballs like these before, with cranberries, sauerkraut and chili sauce adding incredible color and irresistible tang. You’ll love the heavenly aroma, too. —Lisa Potter, Camp Douglas, WI
Whenever we have a brunch at school, I always make these meatballs, and everyone looks forward to sampling them. They make about 5 dozen so they are ideal for potlucks. —Terry Skibiski, Barrington, Illinois
Whenever I serve these saucy baked ham balls to guests, they ask me for the recipe. It's one I've had for many years and is a great use for leftover ham. I love to entertain, and know I can count on these ham balls to be a hit.
This is a versatile recipe to be used either as a main dish or as an appetizer. You simply adjust the size of the meatballs. I like to serve it during the holidays as an appetizer. It works well to curb appetites while your guests await the main meal.

The Country/Victorian wedding Jim and I planned included a ceremony in front of a hitching post Jim made and two special hula dances (I belong to a Hawaiian dance troupe). A good friend, Linda Allen, prepared this meaty snack, with was a hit.
This is a simple weeknight recipe my grandma passed along to me. I grew up on a farm where my father was a beef producer, so we always had ground beef in the freezer. I made these meatballs for our family and for kids while I was babysitting, and they were always a hit. Leftovers reheat well the next day.

These no-fuss meatballs make a marvelous main meal...or serve them as an appealing appetizer. For even quicker preparation, make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze. Then thaw, combine with the creamy sauce and warm in a chafing dish.
