    This recipe rocks! If you're feeling a bit sassy you can add at least another TBLS or so of A1 steak sauce!

    I made this for the Super Bowl. I could only find a 22 ounce bag of meatballs so I used that plus a package of mini hot dogs. It was easy to make and tasted good.

    Made this for New Years Day! Great recipe and so easy specially with ready made frozen meatballs. the only thing I changed was using frozen Turkey meatballs, since watching my fat intake. Next time though I will double the sauce ingredients and add hot sauce to give it more of a zip! This one is a keeper! Thank you for sharing, Debbie!

    This tangy recipe got more compliments than I've ever received on meatballs. A requested favorite for all gatherings. And it doesn't get any easier!

    We made them for an office party and they got gobbled up! And so easy to throw together in the slow cooker.~ Theresa

    These are wonderful and even my son who is a very picky eater likes them. I did find that you can use two packages of meatballs with a single batch of the sauce and they come out great.

    I'm not much of a meatball person, but my husband and friends loved these!
