Recipe by JC in Texas

This is a repeat status recipe. I fix them mostly for my grown son's parties now, and they are the first item to go. Especially in demand during the Holiday Season. An old Southern Living recipe.

Thanks for these tasty meatballs. They go far. I used veal, pork and beef mixture (4 pounds)for these meatballs. Using my Recipe #461723 Mock pineapple, using oatmeal for the cornflakes. Skipped the honey and cut back on the sugar. Added 1 diced red bell pepper.
