Fall is in full swing! It is the time of year for parties and get-togthers of all kinds including tailgates, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and several birthday parties for my family. I just love this time of year as it means getting together with friends and family that I don’t see often. The last thing I want to stress about it what to bring to all those gathering, although I do! It’s a fun time of year but so busy. That is why I don’t try out new, complicated recipes, I go for the surefire recipes I know people will love like delicious meatballs!

Enjoy!The combination of the Heinz, Johnsonville and Ocean Spray products is tasty!! The flavor combination with the sausage meatball is sure to WOW your guests and have them coming back for more. I suggest that you double this recipe. My family of 4 enjoyed almost the entire bag of 28 meatballs for lunch/dinner yesterday! They were a huge hit! Although it had a lot of flavor, it wasn’t too spicy for my young kids. If you want to add more flavor, try adding 1 tp cumin and 1/4 tsp cayenne per recipe!I served the meatballs over brown rice. You could also serve it over pasta if you want to make it a meal. For a party, the meatballs are perfect as a stand-alone or accompanied with a cheese tray, on on kebabs with peppers and onions!
Cut open, you can see how juicy and delicious the Johnsonville meatballs are. And the sauce is amazing! Give yourself a break this holiday season with this easy meatball recipe. Everyone will love this new twist with sausage meatballs with the spice of the chili sauce and sweetness of the cranberries!
We enjoy the entire line of Johnsonville sausage from Italian sausage to brats. The meatballs – both Italian and 3 Cheese are a brand new item for the Akron, OH area. They can be found near the fresh meat department at Acme and Giant Eagle.
