Fall and football season are in full swing – and that means it’s time for parties, tailgates, potlucks, holiday gatherings and other get-togethers!  Party planning can be almost as stressful as it is fun.  Therefore, Heinz, Johnsonville and Ocean Spray have teamed up for the Ultimate Party Meatballs recipe. This delicious and versatile dish is a simple go-to recipe for entertaining!

With a tangy, sweet sauce that is sure to impress, the Ultimate Party Meatballs recipe makes a perfect appetizer or even a main course.  Ultimate Party Meatballs uses just three ingredients that are easy to keep on hand – one jar of Heinz® Chili Sauce, a bag of Johnsonville® Classic Italian Meatballs and one can of Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce.  Three ingredients = total tastiness!  The recipe can easily be prepared on the stove top or in your slow cooker.

Slow cooker Preparation: Place meatballs in a slow cooker. Combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH. 

I made these meatballs for a Harvest party for our Sunday School class this past weekend.  The table was lined with crock pots and hubby was certain (or he was hoping) that there would be leftovers.   These meatballs were a HUGE hit and as you can see from the above photos, that only two lonely meatballs remained in the crock by the end of the night!

Ultimate Party Meatballs uses just three ingredients that are easy to keep on hand.  Throw a bag of Johnsonville Classic Italian Meatballs in the deep freeze and stock the cupboards with Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce and Heinz Chili sauce, then you will be ready for any occasion!  

It is convenient to make and tastes wonderful.  So easy that I let my 8 year old daughter help in the process!  Perfect for the big games, pot-lucks, last minutes guests, etc.
