Rita’s Cranberry Meatballs
Our Cranberry Meatball recipe is near and dear to the hearts of the Leahy family, because it is Rita’s own cherished family recipe. Enjoy this rich Cranberry Meatball recipe as a fall inspired dinner or as a delicious hors d’oeuvre at your next party. To serve as an hors d’oeuvre, just make the meatballs small, and insert toothpicks for easy grabbing and snacking.
Combine all the meatball ingredients and mix well. Once your mixture is combined, shape the meat into your preferred size meatballs and arrange them evenly on a sheet pan.
Bake meatballs at 450F for about 10 minutes. Time will vary based on size of meatballs. Make sure the meatballs reach an internal temperature of 160F to be completely done.
While the meatballs are baking add all the ingredients for the sauce into a sauce pan, combine, and simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
Add the meatballs into a slow cooker, and pour the sauce over the meatballs, keep on low and serve. Enjoy!
