These are absolutely delicious! As a variation, I cut the cranberry in half and added sugar-free orange marmalade - that was also very good and more acceptable to the diabetic members of my family.

I took this dish to a potluck and it was very popular. I used 1lb. of each of the meats and I baked the meatballs for 30 mins. @ 350F. I'll use this recipe again, it was delicious and easy. Thanks, Helen

Wow this is great stuff! I ate the leftovers cold out of the fridge the next day. I couldnt find any ground pork so I substituted ground beef.
