Ultimate Party Meatballs | Heinz and Ocean Spray | Tips and Recipes


The Holiday Season, believe it or not, is already in full swing. Many of us will be hosting open-house parties to celebrate the festive season all the way through New Year’s, and are already adding save-the-dates to our planners. I always welcome this time of year, as it provides the perfect opportunity to reconnect with family and a reason to get together with friends, catching up on stories from the past year while indulging in great meals and favorite recipes.

To me, cooking with friends and family represents a true part of what the holidays mean, and it always ends up being a large part of how we spend our time – laughing and joking as we dice and sauté our way towards a meal.  As a Baby Boomer, I’ve certainly done my share of cooking over the years.  I still love to try new recipes as well as cook up our favorite “go to” dishes. The Holiday cooking season also makes it enjoyable and a festive time to pass on cooking skills to my daughters.   Whenever I offer to bring “a little something” to a party, it’s usually an appetizer or a dessert ~ my specialties.

In recognition of this important season, Heinz and Ocean Spray have teamed up to make a great, easy recipe. Their Ultimate Party Meatball recipe comes together with two steps and only three ingredients, perfect for a quick party appetizer or to throw together when unexpected guests show up on your doorstep.
