Because one just can’t have too many party food or appetizer recipes ready to pull out in a pinch, here’s a shortcut dish that’ll cook up some tasty, flavorful meatballs in your slow cooker while you busy yourself doing other things.
Turkey goes very well with cranberry sauce, so this recipe uses turkey meatballs to pair with the flavorful sauce. You can use canned cranberry sauce (make sure to get the whole berry kind) or you can use leftover homemade sauce! You can use any chili sauce you like – it’s usually sold in cans or glass bottles – and you can vary the heat by tossing in a few drops of hot sauce if you’d like some extra zip.
Stab ’em with some toothpicks to serve as appetizers or spoon the meatballs and sauce over some rice or polenta as part of a meal – this is a versatile recipe that you can dress up or down however you please. Enjoy!
