Slow Cooker Cranberry Spiced Glazed Meatball Appetizers



Meatball Recipe:




4 pounds of lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or venison


4 slices soft bread crust removed


1 tablespoon Italian seasoning


3 tablespoon grating cheese


2 eggs


1 teaspoon granulated garlic


1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes


cayenne pepper to taste


Place the bread into a food processor until fine.


Mix everything together in a bowl with the crumbs.


Form into 1 inch balls and bake on a foil-lined greased pan on 350-degree hot oven, until they are cooked around 35 minutes. In the meantime make the sauce.


Sauce for the Slow cooker



2 cans cranberry jelly


3 cups barbecue sauce


dash of cayenne pepper


1/2 cup bourbon or (orange juice if for kids)


2 tablespoon brown sugar


1 teaspoon granulated garlic


pinch of cinnamon


pinch of nutmeg




Add all ingredients into the slow cooker.

I use a liner so they don't stick. Add the meatballs, place on high for around 1 1/2 hours. They will keep all day on warm and gets better by the day with flavor.
