I made this for Thanksgiving and my family loved it.

I LOVE these meatballs! I was looking for a change from my regular BBQ meatballs and these were great. I did forget the wooster but they were so good I think I'll forget it again. I may do a little less bourbon, not everybody loves it like I do (hic!). Thanks for a great recipe. Since originally posting this I have made these almost every time we have dinner company. We recently had no bourbon so I used Maple Crown Royal - it was great! We have done the sauce on cocktail weenies too.

I've been making these for our holiday party for 5 years now. Always a hit! I use these sauce ingredients with the 96oz. Cost Co. bag of Italian meatballs and that proportion is about right.
