  • 2 20 oz bags frozen meatballs
  • 1 12 oz bottle chili sauce
  • 1 14 oz can whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1-2 Tbs whole grain mustard
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce


  1. Put all in a slow cooker on high 4 hrs or low 6 hrs.

  2. Stir a couple times while cooking so the meatballs are all covered well in the sauce.

Recipe Notes

When shopping, be sure to get a bottle of chili sauce and not cocktail sauce. The bottles can look similar, and I have made this mistake.

Calorie count estimation is for a 2 meatball serving size.
