"I have been making this recipe for years. It is my go-to recipe for meatballs and is always popular. I usually bake the meatballs, prepare the sauce on the stove, then dump everything into a slow cooker."

"My variation uses Grape JAM, omits the Mustard, Soy Sauce, and adds fresh (!) Lemon Juice & a dash or 2 of Hot Sauce. A little Garlic works well, too. quick, easy & Tasty!"
