These were a big hit for dinner last night. The flavor is right on the mark and the preparation is fairly straight forward. I did replace the sugar with Splenda and the result was quite acceptable. I made a double batch hoping to put one in the freezer but they didn't make it that far! I will definitely be making this one again and will have to triple it I guess! Excellent recipe Boies!!

I gave this 5 stars because it was so good, I do have a couple of comments, and one is it is all sweet and no sour. I might try half the sugar next time and see what happens, and I also wonder if you could cook them for one hour with the same results. One tip I have that I got from a Rachel Ray recipe is instead of frying, place meatballs on a slightly greased pan in a 425 degree oven for 10-12 minutes (I go for 15). The meatballs come out surprisingly very nicely browned. It's the only way I'll ever do meatballs again. I'll tell you these were really good, I did freeze them and they were great reheated. My husband and I ate the whole batch and will definitely make again. Thanks for posting.

I've made this several times now and really like this recipe. I bake the meatballs instead of frying but don't change anything else. Thanks for posting.

I cheated and used frozen meatballs and put everything (except used 3/4 cup sugar) in the crockpot on high for about three hours. It didn't reduce at all- I obviously wasn't thinking when I started this- so I added a cornstarch slurry a while before serving to thicken it up some. We all really liked the flavor of the sauce, despite the runniness of it, even though my husband thought an element of heat would be a nice touch. Just wanted to let others know that you wouldn't get great results in a crockpot. I definitely plan to make this again and follow the directions next time. Revisiting my review to add the 5 stars! Made as directed and it was still thinner than I anticipated but so good that I didn't really mind. I will make this often I'm sure (especially if my boys have anything to say about it).

Great recipe! I did reduce the sugar to 3/4 C, and could reduce it further depending on what you like for flavor. A hit at the dinner table, will definately make again.Thanks for the great recipe!

This was so good. I used Healthy Coice Tomato soup, ground turkey and splenda instead of the sugar and my entire family gobbled them up in no time. I will definately make this again.

These meatballs were delicious! We had them for dinner last night and there were no leftovers. I did mix 1 lb. of sausage in with my hamburg and the result was awesome! My two very picky kids ate them up.
