    WiGal's Note:

    Use leftover mashed potatoes to make edible "container" for the meatballs. We've enjoyed this recipe many times. Thank you Chef#70073 for help on how to freeze this. Have reduced the vinegar since AZYRTCH's review. :)

      This was very good! I left out the celery because I didn't have any, otherwise made as directed. I think next time I will reduce the red-wine vinegar to just 1 tsp, DH said it was a bit strong for him. Made for PRMR Holiday Special December 2009.
