This meatballs were super delicious and the sauce had been really appreciated.<br/>The light sweet taste went perfect with this recipe and the addition of ketup to make the meatballs moist is a great idea.<br/>I really can recommend this recipe!

Wonderful recipe! There's no such thing as cranberry sauce available here, so I made my own by boiling two cups of fresh cranberries with a bit of xylitol and lemon juice. Also I used fresh garlic instead of the powder. Otherwise followed the recipe to the letter, and it turned out super-delicious! Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Sweet December Game.

I love these tasty meatballs! Easy to make and they baked up very moist and tender. I liked the sauce and will probably add a dash of tabasco next time. Thanks for posting your recipe!
