This recipe is definitely different and I was happy that someone thought of it before me so that I had a guide. The only downside to these meatballs were that I didn't get the flavor I expected from them, but I also didn't use syrup for one of my batches because I'm eating a little healthier. A huge plus is that I finally got my husband to eat sweet potatoes since he hates them. <br/><br/>I think if I make this recipe again, I will tweak it, but I'm not sure how...probably to be a little less cheesy and garlicy and to be more sweet, maybe throw some cinnamon or something in there...not sure yet, but definitely a great idea! Perfect for leftovers or just to have something different around the house. :-)
