Ultimate Party Meatballs Recipe - Meatball Sliders

We are in the midst of wrestling season, so our nights are filled up with practices, homework, and workouts.  As much as we enjoy sitting down at the dinner table as a family, there are some nights where cooking just isn't an option.  It's on those nights where my crock pot becomes my best friend.
Ultimate Party Meatballs is a simple, go-to recipe for entertaining and a variety of other occasions.  Ultimate Party Meatballs uses just three ingredients that are easy to keep on hand – Heinz® Chili Sauce, a bag of Johnsonville® Classic Italian Meatballs and one can of Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce.  Three ingredients = total tastiness!

  • Johnsonville® Classic Italian Meatballs are made with only premium cuts of meat and never any artificial flavors or colors. 
  • Ocean Spray®’s delicious sweet and tangy cranberry sauce has been a tradition at the table for generations!
  • Heinz is "America's Favorite brand" of Chili Sauce. Perfect for recipes, Heinz Chili Sauce has a tangy flavor, and is great on burgers and fries.

Last night was "one of those nights," so I decided to make some cute meatball sliders with cheese!  Not only were they adorable, they were also delicious and filling.  My kids thought they were the coolest dinner ever and even asked for seconds!

These delicious Ultimate Party Meatballs can be cooked on the stove top or in your slow cooker.  Simply simmer on low and the work is done - they are ready when you are!

I received Heinz®, Johnsonville® and Ocean Spray® products in exchange for sharing this recipe.
With a tangy, sweet sauce that is sure to impress, the Ultimate Party Meatballs recipe makes a perfect appetizer or main course.  Its convenience, versatility and great taste make it the perfect recipe for holidays, appetizers, at-home tailgating to watch the big game, taking to a pot luck, last-minute guests and visitors that drop by, weekend get-togethers, family celebrations, holiday open houses and many other occasions!

Oh my goodness, just looking at those are making me hungry. I definitely have to try these. If I hadn't started dinner already I would have tried this but then again there's always tomorrow.

That looks amazing! I'm currently trying to find a good meatball recipe. My problem is I have to eat gluten free. This makes it hard as it is usually the gluten that is the binding ingredient in meatballs. Rice flour doesn't seem to work as well.

Those look scrumptious! I have made cocktail meatballs like this but never thought about making a sandwich out of it I am going to have to try this. Thanks for the great idea!
