These really are so delicious, folks. They’re almost like little “meatloaf balls”, with a lot more flavorful surface area than a big slice of meatloaf. And the sauce is just a classic sweet/sour ketchup concoction and it makes you think of Grandma. My kids love this dish, which is a miracle. And they’re delicious warmed up the next day and placed on a toasted sandwich bun with melted mozzarella on top. Yikes.
*Note that these meatballs are not in the same category of regular Italian meatballs that would go in Spaghetti and Meatballs—those have more of a breadcrumb/parsley/Parmesan flair. These are more in the comfort food/meatloaf category. If you’d like to serve them with pasta, regular egg noodles tossed in a tiny bit of melted butter would be divine.
