Heinz and Ocean Spray's Easy Ultimate Party Meatballs

Nothing brings people together quite like the holidays. Great company and the tantalizing aroma of great food ignites the social charm of a party!. Whether it be a potluck dinner with close friends, a Sunday afternoon football game with the guys, or all the relatives coming to your house, the holiday season fills up fast with gatherings and get-togethers. As someone who loves to cook, and does it frequently out of necessity-- the arrival of the holidays for me also means a chance to try new recipes, cook up old favorites, and spend time in the kitchen with my family. (Hey, I could use all of the hands that I can get)  As the colder weather keeps us inside more often than not, I find myself searching for warm, comforting dishes that  I can put together at a moments notice.
Thanks to MomCentral, I was beyond ecstatic to come across the information that Heinz and Ocean Spray have teamed up to create a great, easy holiday appetizer recipe. Their Ultimate Party Meatballs recipe takes only two steps and three ingredients, perfect for serving before a holiday meal as tempting hors d'oeuvres or taking to the neighborhood party. This is perfect for busy Moms like us who want to whip up something in a hurry without sacrificing quality or taste! W00t!  Heinz and Ocean Spray have also created a fun Ultimate Party Meatballs website,, filled with additional recipes and tips for entertaining.
