  • 2 to 3 pounds fresh or frozen, fully-cooked meatballs
  • 14 ounce can jellied cranberry sauce
  • 12 ounce jar chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  1. In a saucepan mix together cranberry sauce, chili sauce, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Mix to combine and allow to simmer, stirring frequently, for about 5 to 10 minutes to allow cranberry sauce to break down.

  2. Place meatballs in a 6-quart slow cooker, pour the sauce over, and mix well to combine. Set slow cooker to LOW, cover, and allow to cook for 2 hours before serving. If using frozen meatballs, allow them to cook for 3 hours before serving. When the meatballs are warmed through, switch slow cooker to the WARM setting to keep them warm for an hour or two.

  3. Transfer meatballs to a serving dish or serve them directly from the slow cooker.
