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

"Excellent recipe! I've made these twice already, for parties, using my slow cooker; I added a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to them. Turned out great and everyone loved them! A definite keeper!"

"These were so good and so easy to whip up. I doubled the recipe for a party, and there were just 4 meatballs left at the end. I used a little less cayenne pepper in fear that it might be too spicy for my son, but will use the full amount next time as I didnt find them spicy at all. My son, 12 months, ate 3 meatballs in one sitting! I will definitely make these again."

"Made this for a work potluck and it was a big hit. I cut the sugar in half, it could stand to be cut down even further I would say. Super easy. Cooked in the crockpot, meatballs right from frozen. Used the Italian -style meatballs from Giant Tiger, 9 bucks a bag."
