Knew we were going to enjoy these meatballs - love those old recipes that have ketchup and Worcestershire in the sauce ... the basis for a good many of our prairie comfort foods. Made as posted and wouldn't change a thing. Have added this to my recipe file. Thank you and thank your family friend - happy you shared!
My family loved these meatballs even if I did scorch the sauce. My oven is hot and I should have adjusted for that. I didn't have any Worcestershire Sauce in my pantry (yikes) so used some HP sauce instead. It still tasted great. It is quite sweet but we are a sweet loving family. If you don't like sweet you may want to reduce the sugar a bit. I loved cooking the meatballs in the oven. I used lean ground beef and there was no grease to drain. Thanks for a very good recipe.
