Moose Meatballs

 Moose Meatballs
Our family has found these meatballs in tangy sauce a great use for moose. I was glad to find a good recipe that incorporates ground moose meat, since we eat a lot of moose steaks and I like to use it differently for a change. -Janis Plourde, Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario
