Cranberry Glazed Meatballs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by - Carla -

If you like you can use your own homemade meatballs, meatballs you already have made or store bought. This is a quick, easy, set-it-and-forget-it recipe for Cranberry Glazed Meatballs. I make these nearly every year for our Christmas gathering and they are always eaten up in no time! If I have time I'll make and use the meatballs from my basic meatball Carla's Basic Meatballs. Enjoy!

This is really tasty! I have made a similar recipe using grape jelly and chili sauce, but this is not as sweet. I like the addition of cumin and may add more next time! I used frozen pre-cooked meatballs and this was super easy and fast. Kept warm in a crockpot.
