This was too sweet for us. The meatballs had a really good flavor, but the sauce just had too much sugar.

This was really good...tangy and yet sweet. A nice combination of flavors. I served it with red beans and rice. Thanks for a great recipe!

My husband and I thought this made a delicious meal. I like baking the meatballs in stead of frying them. I think they turn out more tender. The sauce was nice but I used more like a teaspoon of creole seasoning cause we like things good and spicy. Served over noodles and we had a 5-star meal. Thanks Nurse Di.
