Reviews for Applesauce Meatballs
"These were yummy and easy to make. 1 child complained about them being too "soft", so they may not be for everybody. The sauce was also good."
"This was a delicious recipe. Everyone went crazy for them. My sister substituted crushed pineapple but it wasn't as good as the applesauce (not as soft)."
"i had a similar recipe years ago,and lost it. my family loved it."
