Hey all,

Hope everyone's party planning is going well. I am scrambling because between working 45 hours a week and trying to do all of my other stuff I am committed to it's getting crazy!

Anyway, I sat down this morning and planned my party menu, finally. As usual I found lots of sweet recipes but not as many savory recipes that I found appealing. I know a lot of you use meatballs in your menus so I was hoping someone could give me a recipe for them? Or even if you just use the pre-cooked kind - what's the best brand?

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

I use this recipe:
Jimmy Dean Sausage Cheese Balls - Appetizers
They need no sauce or garnish - they are fantastic all by themselves (shhh, you don't have to use that brand sausage!)

I pile them in a trifle bowl and label them goblin brains...

If you have a chopper (I have one that is really fast for chopping/mincing), it's really quick to prepare, too.

EASY MEATBALLS!!! (and SOOO dang good!)

1-2 packages of frozen meatballs
1 can of cranberry sauce (with or without cranberries)
1 can Bavarian sauerkraut (YES...get the Bavarian type)
1 jar chili sauce (ya gotta look for it....it's there in the store trust me)
1/2 cup brown sugar

After you pour this into the crock pot, fill up the jar that had the chili sauce in it with water and add it. Stir a little. Let simmer and stir occasionally. The cranberry jelly will "melt" and it will be ok.....really.

"O" to the "M" to the "G"!!!!!!! OMG it's good!

Hi,

I make these every year, as well for other occasions, and there is never any left.

1-2 bags of frozen pre-made meatballs- regular not italian
1-2 cans of crushed/ diced pineapple bits
b*b*q* sauce, brown sugar & mustard to taste.

Place pineapple, bbq sauce, brown sugar & mustard in a crock pot until warm and mixed well then throw in meatballs, turn on let & let "simmer" for a couple of hours.

Super easy & yummy!

Mine is similar
frozen meatballs(lg bag from costco)
2 large cans enchilada sauce
3 reg size cans of jellied cranberry sauce

I heat up the enchilada and cranberry sauce till combined and then pour it all over the meatballs in the crockpot. Then I just keep it on low at the party so they are always hot and they taste great. Never any left!

Thanks for all the ideas, guys! These all sound so good! It's going to be hard to decide which to make ;)

I use a large bag of Italian style meatballs from Costco, a large jar of grape jelly and a couple bottles of Heinz chili sauce. Put all in crockpot for a couple hours before the party. There are never any left at the end of the night (so I always have to make them again for the family ;) )

P.S. Guests have started asking: "are you making your meatballs?" :D
