Spicy Sausage Meatballs with Champagne Cranberry Dipping Sauce

This simple appetizer is a must for any get-together! A few years ago, I whipped some things together to see how it would turn out and everyone absolutely loved these Spicy Sausage Meatballs with Champagne Cranberry Dipping Sauce.

My boys and I are now required to bring this delicious, simple appetizer to share at every family gathering. The only key is to make them last long enough for everyone to enjoy at least one. I highly recommend doubling the recipe for all to enjoy.
