I looked in the pantry and there was no BBQ sauce for my meatballs. Panic! I’m taking meatballs to a birthday party tomorrow and wanted to get a head start. So, I decided that I would try a new type of meatball sauce similar to one I found on BigOven. This recipe is a twist on the grape jelly meatball sauce where cranberry sauce is used instead. It was changed it up in a big way to make it my own and get the taste I wanted. The only thing I didn’t do was make it a “Drunkin” dish. It was posted on BigOven just now. Visit there to see more of my recipes and those of many others. The cooked meatballs are now marinating in the thick sauce in the fridge. Into the crockpot they will go tomorrow to finish up for a few hours before the party.
|12 ounces Cranberry Sauce; or Cranberry Jelly||2 tablespoons Chili powder|
|16 ounces Tomato sauce||1 teaspoon Chili Spice; Carroll Shelby’s|
|1 tablespoon Sugar||1 teaspoon Onion powder|
|1 tablespoon Honey||1 teaspoon Salt|
|2 tablespoons Dark Corn Syrup||1/4 teaspoon Pepper|
Combine all ingredients in mediums size saucepan and cook over medium heat until thickened and smooth. If you are using leftover Cranberry Sauce instead of jelly, then use a masher to reduce the size of the berries. Pour hot sauce over pre-cooked meatballs in a crockpot. Stir occasionally to coat. Keep warm on low until ready to serve.
