    Kat's Mom's Note:

    Even better the next day! I always make a *big* batch in the crockpot - because when my kids hear that I am making it, they come over to snag a jar or two. If pinched for time, substitute 3/4 TSP of garlic powder and 3 TBL dried minced onions for fresh and cook in a large pot on the stove on low heat for 2 hours (stirring occasionally). When available, I prefer to use meatloaf mix instead of hamburger, but you could use frozen meatballs if you prefer. This sauce freezes well and is always worth the effort.
