Cranberry sauce is also a great topper for many meat dishes. Use your extra cranberry sauce as a glaze for your next chicken or pork dish. Just mix the cranberry sauce with a little vinegar and glaze the chicken or pork [source: Gates]. Another twist on this idea is to use the cranberry sauce and vinegar mixture in place of the ketchup you might use to top meatloaf. Along with a similar red color, the sauce will help to keep the meat moist and enhance the overall flavor of the dish [source: Gates].
