    Simply Chris's Note:

    I searched thru 3 pages of Sweet & Sour Meatball recipes to make sure this was unique and I think it is. I got this recipe from a lovely woman named Iola back in 1973. It is still a favorite and requested by friends and family alike. You can use your own meatball recipe, or if you're like me...I sometimes run out of time and I use frozen already prepared meatballs.

      These things were devoured by my friends! I though I made enough by tripling the recipe but no they craved more!

      It is nice that others have enjoyed this recipe. We didn't care for the taste of the sauce on this one. It tasted too much of tomato soup and not enough "sweet and sour". Also, the texture of the sauce turned out really thick (like undiluted tomato soup). I prefer sauces with ketchup instead of tomato soup as it adds a little extra zip. :)

      I loved this for the ease of making. I served over steamed white rice and sprinkled with some finely grated parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. A 'keeper' for me.
