Sweet and Sour Meatballs

About a week before Christmas Mom told me about the meatballs that somebody at work brought for a potluck.  She told me they were amazing, told me the ingredients, and Keith promptly said no, he wouldn’t try them.

Then we honestly forgot what with all the blizzard excitement, so when we got over to Mom’s house the day after Christmas (her birthday by the way), we all headed for the appetizers.  Every single one of us LOVED these!  I wish I had a picture, but didn’t even think about it at the time.

And I know the ingredients sound strange, just trust me and make them.  You can thank me later.


1 bag of pre-cooked meatballs from Sams.  (About 1/2 big bag fills a crockpot)
1 can cranberry sauce
1 can sauerkraut (don't drain the juice)
1 bottle of chili sauce
1 cup brown sugar

Put all ingredients in your crockpot and cook on high until the cranberry sauce and brown sugar melt and the meatballs get hot, then turn it to low.

You really need to stir this often.  As the cranberry sauce melts it will make your sauce.  Until it does you need to keep the meatballs stirred up so they do not stick on the bottom. 



I am happily linking this to Tasty Tuesday – go and look at all the new recipes that are linked!  :)

Those sound really good.
It's funny....I just took some meatballs out of the oven.
I got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman's website.
I haven't tried them yet, but they're sure smelling good.

This recipe of yours sounds a whole lot easier and sounds really yummy!

These sound yummy! I've got the recipe where you put equal amounts of chili sauce and grape jam, and it's good. But this sounds better. Thanks!
