Slow Cooker Cranberry Meatballs

 

Slow Cooker Meatballs at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
Slow Cooker Cranberry Meatballs are very popular here at the cottage. We serve these delicious appetizers for game day parties, gatherings for friends, and they have gone to many a party when we are asked to bring something. These meatballs are great all by themselves without the amazing sauce, Add the sauce and they are real winners every time. I have yet to bring just 1 meatball home, they are always all gone. If you want left overs, you need to make a double batch!
