Apricot Salsa Meatballs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kate 8

This incredibly yummy meatball recipe disappears quickly at parties. I found it on the back of a package of Armour meatballs. I use more cinnamon than is called for--at least 2 tsp.

This recipe was waaaay too sweet for my taste. I set it up in the crockpot before I went to work, and when I got home and tasted it, I thought for sure I'd read the recipe wrong! Tried adding onions and Worcestershire to the sauce, but it still wasn't edible.
