I've relied on this recipe for many years. The tomato sauce and brown sugar make a nice sweet sauce. Kids love these meatballs.

Great recipe, thanks for posting. We love them.
I needed a GLUTEN FREE meatball recipe, I adjusted this to our allergies and this was perfect. THANK YOU!
Kids DO LOVE these! I am making them tonite as requested by my 9 yr old daughter. I like that it is made with pantry ingredients, instead of mixes and canned soups, etc. Thanks for sharing a family pleaser!
