This is our family favorite. You'll want to halve the sauce ingredients if you're serving them as an appetizer. We love them over rice.

  2. Form small, bite-size meatballs, dredge in flour and brown in vegetable oil.

Made these to share with a neighbor, & after a nice indulgent taste-test, froze my half of the meatballs for another meal (a meal that I'm so looking forward to)! For what it's worth, I used dark molasses & even included the entire measure of Tabasco sauce (surprise, surprise!) & absolutely enjoyed these VERY TASTY buggers! Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!
