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

"@lidalu - It's not a 32 BALL package - it's a 32 OUNCE package and there about 72 balls in a 32 oz package."

"These are delicious and the easiest thing to make ever! I put them in my crockpot. I really like the chili sauce and cranberry flavors better than barbecue sauce. Will be making these again for the holidays this year."

MY REVIEW

"I love this recipe. It is a "go to" recipe for a party appetizer or to use in a meatball hero topped with motzerella cheese. I never have leftovers and have been asked for this recipe time and time again!"
