I've seen this recipe several times over the years, but never tried it until tonight. I think it's meant to be more of an appetizer, but we had it as a dinner, served on rice, with green beans. It got the thumbs up from 4/5 of us! The man who took a bite and spit it into the trashcan shall remain nameless. Since I am currently following the Weight Watchers program, I made this recipe with turkey meatballs rather than beef meatballs. Turkey meatballs are an acquired taste, and apparently the above mentioned nameless man has yet to acquire it. :)
1 lb. frozen precooked meatballs
12-oz bottle chili sauce
16-oz can jellied cranberry sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
Place meatballs in slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, combine chili sauce, cranberry sauce, and brown sugar, breaking up the cranberry sauce as well as you can. Pour over meatballs. Cover and cook on low 3 to 4 hours.
