Alot of similar recipes, but didn't find one exactly like this so I thought I would post. Brown sugar makes these extra sweet. This recipe is made every year at my neice's birthday parties. I got it from her mom. :)

I thought this recipe was great! Except they were a little sweet. I recommend adding only 1 1/2 Tablespoons of brown sugar.

I added garlic powder while browning the meat and onion. I wanted the onions softened. I omitted the salt and green peppers, used No Salt Added Ketchup, 1/4 teaspoon apple wine vinegar and added 1/8 teaspoon dill. I added a small amount of water and cooked it out in order to blend the flavors and make it a bit saucy because I thought the ketchup and all was not enough to hold the meat together. I may have had a bit more than a pound of ground meat though. It was a bit too sweet for my taste so next time I will use 2 T. of brown sugar. Not enough zip so may add a little cayenne. Thanks for posting this MissJennifer.
