      The meatballs were very easy to do. They were a bit dry when rolling. But they were perfect at the end. I used italian breadcrumbs. In the sauce I used red bell pepper and more. The sauce is too sweet for me and DH. But my son really liked these meatballs with the sauce. Thanks Blue Rose :) Made for PAC Spring 2012

      Originally tagged this recipe so I'd have some meatballs to freeze, & in fact, that's where almost 30 of them ended up! The rest were served as the recipe calls for, with the great tasting BBQ sauce, & I'll definitely be keeping this recipe around to make again! Absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      The only problem with this recipe is now I have to make them for every family event. Great recipe!!! Had to do a 4X batch last time, but worth every minute. Super tasty, and different from convenetial meatball recipes.
