  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • Cover 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil; spray with cooking spray. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and eggs just until blended. Shape into 50 (1-1/2-inch) meatballs; place on prepared pans.
  • Bake 16 min. or until done (160ºF). Meanwhile, bring barbecue sauce and cranberry sauce to boil in large saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Add meatballs to sauce; stir to evenly coat.

Serving Suggestion

Meatballs in sauce can also be served in a slow cooker set on LOW.

Note

If you don't have 2 rimmed baking sheets, you can use any shallow baking pans instead. Just make sure the meatballs are spread into a single layer in each pan.

How to Freeze Meatballs

Loosely pack cooled meatballs in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. Lay bags flat in freezer so meatballs will freeze individually. Store in freezer up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator several hours or overnight before using as desired.

    Made these for my jewelry party the other night...they were a hugh success. I added a half a cup of milk as the mix seemed a little dry & it did not ruin the recipe so I would recommend it. Wasn't sure who may like the cranberry so I added honey to the bbq sauce instead. They were great!

    I really like the sauce on these meatballs, but think the stove top is way to overpowering in flavor for the meatballs. You can really taste it over all other flavors. Just ok for me.
