Easy and Tasty Game Day Meatballs using Three Ingredients!

I am no chef. In fact, most of the time I hate to cook. For this reason I am a huge fan of easy foods, and foods that can be cooked in my crockpot. I like to plop the food in, and walk away- come back hours later, and tada a healthy and tasty dinner. Recently I was asked to tell you about this quick and easy recipe using only Johnsonville Meatballs, Heinz Chili Sauce and Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce.

I was not sure we would love this. I do not like Cranberry Sauce and my oldest little man does not care for Chili Sauce or anything with a hint of "spice" to it at all. I figured I could wipe the sauce off and allow him to just eat the meatballs since he really loves them if need be. Not necessary!! My hubby also gets tired of me making BBQ meatballs, which I do a lot because of the ease and the fact my little guy loves them.

So, I gathered my ingredients.....a rather insubstantial list and popped them in the crockpot on high for 4 hours and tada, DELICIOUS meatballs. I just love when something does the cooking for me!

How you can get your own Game Day Meatballs: 
All you really need is: One Package of Classic Johnsonville Meatballs, 1 can of Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce and 1 glass bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce  (I personally used two bags of meatballs because my guys can put some meat away) You mix the two sauces together and pour over the meatballs. You can either use a sauce pan and cook it that way, until the meatballs are warm and tender or put them in a crockpot on high like I did. How easy is that?!?!? My kinda meal!

What my boys thought: 
What my family thought: Little man gave me a thumbs up but would not stop chewing long enough to give me a real answer. Later on, he said he loved them. Hubby came home this morning raving about it again (He took it to work last night for another dinner-He works nights) and said he loves it so much more than my BBQ meatballs. I liked it, but then again I really like the BBQ meatballs so I am easy to please!! I even gave the baby some with mashed potatoes and he seemed happy about them too!
