Sweet & Spicy Meatballs (can be Vegan!)

Sweet & Spicy Meatballs (can be Vegan!)

This recipe can easily be made vegetarian or vegan by switching the type of meatballs!!

2 lbs of cooked meatballs (your favorite meat or meat-less variety, or homemade)

1 Cup of Peach-Apricot Sauce  (you could easily use the Mango-Pineapple or Blueberry-Ginger for this recipe as well)

1 Cup of Orange Marmalade

1/2 Cup of Dried Cranberries

1/4 to 1/2 Cup of Water

Peach-Apricot Meatballs


In our house, we use a fresh turkey meatball, but whatever variety or recipe you prefer works fine.  Put all ingredients into a small crockpot except the water.  Check in an hour to see if the water is needed to compensate for the moisture used by the cranberries, add if needed.

Serve with toothpicks as a pass-around appetizer, or over rice with some glazed carrots on the side (see our recipe)!  This was a HUGE hit for our New Year's Eve Party!
