You all know I love the crockpot! And I love making quick, easy appetizers that you don’t have to stress over! Well, today I am sharing a crockpot appetizer that is seriously soooooo easy! These Crock Pot Cranberry Barbecue Meatballs only take 3 ingredients and a few hours and you have an appetizer everyone will love!
John kept telling me he wasn’t excited for these meatballs. He was worried the cranberry flavor would be overpowering and he wouldn’t like them. When I started making them he gave me the look. You know the one that says I am going to try these but not because I am happy only because you are making them…..
I am happy to say his grumpy look disappeared when he tried them. He grumbled that they were actually really good and went back for more. Woohoo score 1 for me! Who would have thought cranberry meatballs would make my husband admit he was wrong about a recipe.
