Holiday Cranberry Meatballs

These meatballs are so delicious everyone will want the recipe.
For the Meatballs:
2 pounds Lean Ground Beef
1 Package Stove Top Stuffing Bread NOT Cornbread
2 eggs
1 cup Water
1 good handful Craisins or dried Cranberries

For the Sauce:
1 16 ounce bottle of BBQ sauce
1 14 ounce can of whole Cranberry Sauce    
In a large bowl, mix all  ingredients until well combined. For appetizer size mini meatballs, form 48 meatballs using a scoop or spoon. For larger meatballs form about 30 meatballs. Place meatballs on a lightly sprayed baking sheet as you form them and bake at 400 degrees F. for about 15 minutes until browned and no longer pink. 
To make the sauce, add BBQ sauce and can of cranberries to a large sauce pan and cook over medium heat until pipping hot.
Allow meatballs to cool so they don't fall apart. Add meatballs to the sauce pan and gently stir to coat.
You're done. It's that simple!
Add picks to the mini meatballs for appetizers or serve over white rice.
