Cranberry meatballs

Cranberry Meatballs
2 eggs, beaten
1 c dry bread crumbs
1/3 c minced fresh parsley
1/3 c ketchup
2 T finely chopped onion
2 T soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 lbs. ground beef
1 can (16 oz) whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 bottle (12 oz) chili sauce
1 T brown sugar
1 T prepared mustard
1 T lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
In a bowl, combine the first nine ingredients (see above pic) Add beef and mix well. 
Shape into 1 inch balls. Place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink
Transfer with a slotted spoon to a slow cooker or chafing dish.
Combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour over meatballs. Serve warm.
My meatballs were slightly bigger than 1" and yielded about 60. Total time about 1- 1.5 hours.
