This Thanksgiving make some cranberry glazed meatballs in your crockpot. I took my sweet and sour meatball recipe and converted to a Thanksgiving theme with the cranberries. The crockpot is a perfect way to create these little appetizers without having to fuss with messy pots and pans. Plus, it allows you to keep them warm and serve them right from the pot!
