Very simple to follow and good results! I used 1/2 chopped fresh onion instead of the onion flakes. The hard part was waiting them to bake for the final hour!



These are sooo yummy. I made them for my daughter's birthday party back in November, and they were a bit hit. The sauce is yummy and a nice alternative to your chili sauce and jelly based sauces. I like to roll my meatballs a little smaller than a golf ball...that way, they are "kid sized" for the little nibblers. I served them in a glass baking dish with toothpicks. Thanks Teresa.



These were so easy and a huge hit at my playgroup! I will be making these again. I did double the sauce recipe, and after baking the meatballs the first time, I poured the sauce over them and refrigerated them overnight. The next morning I put it all in the crockpot and cooked 4-6 hours. Delicious!
