Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400ºF.
Cover 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil; spray with cooking spray. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and eggs just until blended. Shape into 50 (1-1/2-inch) meatballs; place on prepared pans.
Bake 16 min. or until done (160ºF). Meanwhile, bring barbecue sauce and cranberry sauce to boil in large saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Add meatballs to sauce; stir to evenly coat.
Meatballs in sauce can also be served in a slow cooker set on LOW.
If you don't have 2 rimmed baking sheets, you can use any shallow baking pans instead. Just make sure the meatballs are spread into a single layer in each pan.
How to Freeze Meatballs
Loosely pack cooled meatballs in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. Lay bags flat in freezer so meatballs will freeze individually. Store in freezer up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator several hours or overnight before using as desired.
These flavorful meatballs, made with lean ground beef, are sure to become a new family favorite. And as a bonus, you can feel good about serving these smart appetizers to your friends and family.
