    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Use your own favorite meatball recipe to make this. The amounts listed is enough for 2 pounds ground beef, you should get anywhere from 45-50 (1-inch) meatballs, if you are serving a crowd of people then I suggest to use 3 pounds of beef. Serve the meatballs in a chafing dish with long toothpicks or in a small crockpot. If desired you can saute the fresh garlic in the butter first, and then add in the remaining ingredients. This is always a favorite at get togethers!

      Although I did not make the meatball part I did use this sauce for my own meatballs and it was great. I used this sauce with my cranberry jalapeneo turkey meatballs and serve as an appetizer. Thank you
