    A wonderful tangy sweet meatball appetizer. I reduced the size to about and inch in size and doubled the amt. of meatballs.

    I only made the meatballs,and boy were they ever messy to roll. I think next time I'll add a little less milk. I will try your sauce next time also.

    The sauce for this recipe is quick, easy, and delicious. I made this for my boyfriend's 50th and they were a hit. They were devoured and I received many compliments.

    I love this recipe, I use frozen meatballs and usually serve it over mashed potatoes. Sauce is perfect. If you're looking to change it up add some worcestershire into the sauce. Different taste, just as good.

    I have this recipe, also, and it is a family favorite! Sometimes I'm lazy and make the meatballs a bit bigger just because they are so messy and it makes A LOT. The ones in the photo are a little bigger. Also, my recipe just says chopped onions but I liked *minced* much better, as this recipe calls for. I will be sure to mince the onions next time! They are messy to make but so very good!

    I make these using 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 grape jelly (yes, grape jelly. I thought the same thing) heat over stove until saucy add a dash of Tabasco if desired and meatballs. Fantastic and easy!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
