    Made for ZWT-8, your meatballs were in good company w/Recipe #161522 by Charmie777. Altho just 2 of us, I made a full recipe & didn't mind a bit that there were leftovers for the freezer. That's where a lot of food is going as ZWT progresses. These meatballs are tasty, ingredient-friendly & an easy-fix. I esp like that they're baked vs fried. DH has already spoken for those frozen leftovers to accompany him on his next fishing trip. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

    These have really good taste although not quite hot enough for my family. I almost doubled this recipe to bring to a family Christmas and so I was a little leery about adding too much cayenne. Also, I was hoping for a thicker sauce. It stayed quite juicy. I put these in the crock-pot after baking, so I'm not sure if that's why? But, I came home w/very little, so everyone must have enjoyed the taste as well. I might add I also put in one pkg. of the little weiners as well.<br/>Made for Appetizers and Side Dish Game in KK's forum~

    Very good! As the other reviewer said, this definitely has a strong taste, but that's okay cause it's a GOOD one! :) I used 2 tsp onion powder instead of the 2 T onion flakes and only 2/3 chili sauce (because I ran out) and it turned out just fine! Thanks!
