Meat Balls

This recipe was shared with me from a friend back home.  It is great for feeding a large group. I prepared 100 meatballs and took to a friend's potluck dinner.  I thought for sure there would be leftovers.  The pan was empty by the end. It is very quick and easy!!
This recipe is also found at Kraft Foods . Com 

2 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg.  (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1 cup water
2   eggs
1 bottle (16 oz.) KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
1 can  (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
**More sauce recipes listed below.

Make It

HEAT oven to 400ºF.
LINE 2 (15x10x1-inch) pans with foil; spray with cooking spray. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and eggs until blended. Shape into 50 (1-1/2-inch) meatballs; place in prepared pans.
BAKE 16 min. or until done (160ºF). Meanwhile, bring barbecue sauce and cranberry sauce to boil in large saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
ADD meatballs to sauce; stir to evenly coat.
*Serving Suggestion
-Meatballs in sauce can also be served in a slow cooker set on LOW.
-If you don't have 2 (15x10x1-inch) pans, use any other shallow baking pans instead. Just make sure the meatballs are spread into a single layer in each pan.
*How to Freeze Meatballs
-Loosely pack cooled meatballs in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. Lay bags flat in freezer so meatballs will freeze individually. Store in freezer up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator several hours or overnight before using as desired.
**Sauce Recipes
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
