I have been making these little gems for years. We call them "Bubby's Meatballs" She has passed away and I am left with her recipes. The only difference is instead of 1 cup of halla, I put in a package of Matzo Ball mixture and a package of onion soup. I also add water by filling the chili sauce bottle to get out all the dregs. Holidays wouldn't be complete without these meatballs on white rice.

Made the sauce for some store bought vegetarian meatballs (needed a quick dinner!) Loved it! Terrific for dipping tatertots in too! Next time I'll use homemade "meatballs" with the seasonings stated but even with shortcuts this was VERY good! Froze half the sauce for next time. Thanks Mirj! UPDATE - Just wanted to say that I took the frozen leftover sauce and (in an emergency) used it for baked chicken - FABULOUS!

I made this for our X-mas appy table. We liked these very much. I used the whole berry sauce and added my homemade chili sauce. My guests liked it and kept going back for more. Thank you for sharing.

The meatball recipe is awesome, and with this sauce, you got a winner! I took these to a women's meeting and the recipe was requested by many. Hey, thanks for making a mediocre cook look so good!

These are fantastic! The sauce is tangy, and the meatballs have a great flavor. The kids may not want to wait for another holiday for me to make these again! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

This was very good although I'll have to admit I did make a few changes. I skipped the parsley in the meatballs and replaced the challah breadcrumbs with quick oats (I've generally found oats make the meatballs moister). For the sauce I only used 1C of cocktail sauce. But otherwise this was GREAT! Made the meatballs the night before & then threw it all in the crock that AM. Everyone enjoyed it at our party. Thanks for sharing!
