Everyone loves to party; it’s all about good food, drink, and getting together with friends. When I saw this Perfect Cocktail Party Meatballs Recipe with cranberry sauce, I had to give it a try. When it comes to parties I put food at the top of my list, and this combination of flavors as an appetizer sounded like it fit the menu pretty good. I prepared the recipe as is. If you need a larger amount, for a bigger guest list, just double or triple the recipe. The recipe does not call for any salt or pepper, and it tastes fine without it, but you can salt and pepper to taste if you choose. So the next time you are getting ready to host your next cocktail party give this recipe a try, your guests will love it. Enjoy
