Using packaged meatballs helps save time in the kitchen and they are just as tasty as homemade. My friends look forward to enjoying these meatballs at our holiday gatherings and there are never any leftovers! The sauce is tangy yet sweet, and the festive color is perfect for any holiday party. —Amy Scamerhorn, Indianapolis, Indiana

"I get rave reviews on these at every gathering I have brought them to. Super easy to make. The only thing I did different was to make them in a crock-pot so they would stay warm during service."

"For packaged meatballs, these were very good and super easy. I took these to a family Christmas and after the meatballs were gone, my grandma wanted the leftover sauce and said I better not throw it away!"
