This was easy to put together the other morning. I made it the morning of our church potluck and baked it at church. Next time I make this I'm going to use my blender and add the jellied cranberry sauce, water, brown sugar and chili sauce and mix it in the blender. Then stir in sauerkraut by hand before pouring over the meatballs. I might try making this the next time without using the chili sauce and see how I like it. I got 44 small meatballs using my small meatball scoop. I'd guess that they were about 1/8 of a cup, since I don't know what size you call that scoop. Younger children may not like this because of the sauerkraut, you know kids. Oh yes, I also pressed the sauerkraut between paper towels after I had drained it. Thanks for the recipe, this would be great on a buffet table for appetizers.
