    Chippie1's Note:

    Been making these for years always receiving rave reviews from family and friends. There is quite a bit of garlic in the recipe, but after being sauteed the flavor soaks into the meatballs and sauce.

      I changed it up a little but really enjoyed it. I lessened the ketchup and upped the soy sauce and used quite a bit of butter. I put it all in the food processor as I was worried about garlic chunks. We had it that evening at a party and it was good. The leftovers the next night were outstanding.

      I served this on top of rice to make a meal. <br/>This is a great recipe. I was a little leary about adding milk to the mix and it didn't look all or that appetizing. It turned out great. The milk allowed the meatballs to stay moist. I used this recipe for dinner instead of an appetizer for dinner. I changed the recipe just a little. I seasoned my ground turkey a little with seasoning salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a little crushed red peppers. I added a little hickory bbq sauce to the mix which gave it great flavor. To give it some heat I added crushed red peppers to the sauce as well. I used ground turkey which was great. After I added the meatballs to the sauce. I cut up a red, green, yellow pepper and onion and sauteed them in olive oil in a separate skillet. I also had some canned pineapple chunks and I drained the the pineapples and cut them up a little smaller and added them to the mix. This gave it an Asian Fusion. (If I had some sesame seeds I would have probably sprinkled that in the mix as well). <br/>Great dish for a party or dinner....YUM!!!

      LOVED THIS RECIPE!! It was super tangy in my opinion so i added about 3 Tbs of grape Jelly to the sauce and that really smoothed things out (everything was followed to a T!)
