~I received Heinz®, Johnsonville® and Ocean Spray® products in exchange for sharing this recipe. All thoughts and opinions are my own.~
Today we were whipping up some Ultimate Meatballs for the 2nd game of the World Series. I live in St. Louis so you can guess who I’m rooting for!
Judah has been pretty excited about getting to wear his apron from Heinz with the Johnsonville cooking glove. This photo was taken from a few days ago when we were going to make the meatballs but couldn’t find them.
To help everyone out, I have located them in my area! You can find them at Schnuck’s in the freezer case by the produce, NOT by the other freezer foods. We believe it is because the Johnsonville® Classic Italian Meatballs are special and must be in their own case. They are that good.
The Ultimate Meatballs are extremely simple to make and take no more than 25 minutes. It only requires 3 ingredients! Heinz® Chili Sauce, a bag of Johnsonville® Classic Italian Meatballs and one can of Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce!
You take both sauces and heat them on Med. until the sauce is smooth and then add the meatballs, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Viola!
The boys loved the Ultimate Meatballs, loved. I was actually searching everywhere for these cute little toothpicks I was given for serving and I told them not to touch the meatballs. I came back to two boys sneaking them off the plate! In their defense, they did look really good.
The Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce gives it just enough sweetness while the Heinz® Chili Sauce gives it a kick! It isn’t too spicy, if you are wondering for tots. It just has a very good rich tang that compliments the seasons in the meatballs.
It’s been a really great evening with finger foods and having fun with the kids. This is definitely a recipe that is great for get togethers. The Johnsonville® Classic Italian Meatballs bags are even resealable, just in case you have to cut the recipe down for smaller groups. And if you aren’t into Classic Italian, there is also Homestyle Meatballs!
The Ultimate Meatballs Recipe was a success at my house with the kids and the Cards won Game 2 of the World Series! It’s definitely been an exciting day!
