    Manda, I had actually made these meatballs several times, but forgot to post my review. Manda, these meatballs were sooo good, but I did prepare them abit differently. First, I halved the recipe, which I did get 21-(1-inch) meatballs, then I baked them in a 350 degree oven for 12 minutes. Also, when I added the crushed cornflakes to the meatball mixture, I found that 3 cups of the cornflake cereal, then "crushed" will equal 1 cup of the cereal crumbs needed for this recipe, but since I halved the recipe, I only needed 1-1/2 cups of the cereal, and when "crushed", you will end up with a 1/2 cup of the cereal crumbs. When it came to making the sauce, which I also halved the recipe, I did this before making the meatballs, and used a potato masher to mash the jellied cranberries. I then baked the meatballs, with the cranberry sauce, for 20 minutes in the 350 degree oven. Manda, this recipe certainly deserves more than 5 stars, as these meatballs were sooo good!! Thank you for posting this recipe.

    These were good. I added 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder and 1/4 c. barbecue sauce instead of the brown sugar. Thanks for sharing.

    Mmmm!! good! I halved the meat recipe but made all the sauce.The can cranberry sauce was 14 ounces as was the chili sauce. Baked at 350° for 45 minutes as I made the meatballs earlier in the day and had them refrigerated, I also was lazy and didn't bother cooking the sauce on top of the stove, just whisked it up good and poured it over the meatballs, Served with mashed potatoes and veggie. I got 21 meatballs, I guess I have big walnuts lol
