The holiday season is upon us, and with it come lots of parties and family get togethers. Each year, I try to think of foods that I can lend a holiday twist too, while keeping the dish new and interesting. This year, I have come up with a holiday sausage meatball with a cranberry BBQ dipping sauce recipe made with Sargento Shredded Cheese that had the boys drooling before they had even finished cooking.
