She shared the recipe and one day I saw a bag of meatballs in the freezer and I decided to make it for dinner.
Ready to cook, geared with my Red Apron,
I looked for the ingredients in my not so organized pantry, seriously who has an organized pantry besides Martha?
Of course! I didn't have the grape jelly it required!!!
No one eats grape jelly in my house!
Why? I don't know why?
My kids just don't. Like most of the "don't like this and that" food in their short list of food likes.
I looked in my fridge and looked for something I can substitute the grape jelly with.
I make cranberry sauce all the time, this is pretty much a staple in my fridge. I love cranberry sauce with my roasted poultry, in my pork or on my bagel with cream cheese.
That's how this happy accident recipe came about.
1 (32 oz.) bag frozen meatballs
1 1/2 cups cranberry sauce/jelly
1 (18 oz.) bottle spicy BBQ sauce
1 cup water
1 12-ounce package Fresh or Frozen Cranberries
