After what feel like days in the kitchen from a Thanksgiving Holiday it’s time for something different. 

Cranberry Meatballs are sure to please.  We all love those flavors of Thanksgiving that just make you feel all warm inside, so why not take a little of that and throw it into something completely different with a Cranberry Meatball! 

By now we are all tired of turkey anyways.  🙂

This recipes has about 2 minutes of actual work.  It’s seriously so easy.  In a bowl combine cranberry sauce and chili sauce and mix it all up until smooth. 

Then in a crock pot put your frozen Italian meatballs and pour the sauce over the top and give it a good stir.  Really, just stir it all up. 

Now set your temperature to low and let it cook for 2-3 hours or until heated through.  Your home will be filled with that wonderful cranberry smell, and you will have a completely new dinner to eat. 

Yummy!  It really is just that simple.
