You are going to LOVE me for this one! This might be the easiest recipe I make and it is divinely yummy. It’s my kids’ favorite dinner in the world, the rest of my family adores it too, and it works either as a main course (plain or over spaghetti) or with smaller meatballs and a side of toothpicks as an appetizer.
- 1 can jellied cranberry sauce
- 1 bottle chili sauce
- 1 bag frozen, pre-cooked meatballs
-Combine cranberry sauce and chili sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir until smooth.
-Add meatballs, stir. Cover saucepan and let simmer for 15 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
-Serve alone or over spaghetti. If making as an appetizer, buy cocktail-size frozen meatballs. As a main course, buy larger meatballs.
Totally going to try these. I made your blackberry cobbler over the weekend and it was a big hit!
Awesome! I make these all the time- I’m the most popular person in the house when we have these for dinner. 🙂
I’m going to try these too. I happen to have all the ingredients on hand, so it’s going to be tomorrow night’s supper. I love easy dump and cook recipes that I can then take credit for being a superb cook.
Then you are in the right place! LOL
I’ve made this recipe for a few years after my husband talked all the time about his Grandma’s meatballs. But instead of cranberry sauce, I use grape jelly. They are very yummy!
How much grape jelly do you use? A whole jar?
I use the smaller jar. I think it’s about 16 oz.
Hmmm. I will have to try it this way and compare. 🙂 Several people have mentioned the grape jelly variation on Facebook.

The first time I tried this recipe I went to the store in search of “chili sauce” My friend forgot to tell me it was a ketchup like item. I came home with and still have a can of Kroger “chili sauce” wich is also really bad hotdog chili in a can. 🙁 At least they caught me before I opened it and dumped it in the crockpot.
