This is my mother-inlaws meatballs. We have them at every family gathering and my husband begs for them at home for a special treat, and will even call his mom just to make sure she is making them before we go over to their house! I hope you enjoy this simple but yummy concoction!

I served as an appetizer.. Great flavor and so easy to make, just kept warm in a crockpot. Thanks for sharing!

This is definitely a 5 star recipe. I made this for "New Kids on the Block" tag game. The sauce was sweet, but not too sweet. My husband and I both really liked it and will make it again. Thank you so much for this recipe. I know my pics are bad, but believe me, it was really good with mashed potatoes. Thank you so much!
