My husband and I raise cattle on our farm here in southwestern Ontario, so it's no surprise that we're fond of these saucy meatballs. I know your family will like them, too. —Marion Foster, Kirkton, Ontario

"Meatball was recipe was great, all thought I didn't make the honey garlic sauce, I used Diana's Honey Garlic and cut up some red and yellow peppers and made basmati rice and it turned out so good. Meatballs were so juicy and the flavor went so well with the sauce. A keeper."

"I could give this a higher rating, but 1/2 cup of honey made this way too sweet for us. Cut back the honey and enjoy the twang!"

"Really good. Will definitely make again. The last batch of garlic I purchased was a bit stronger than typical and I think it impacted the overall flavor of these so would like to try again with a good batch."

"Good, easy recipe. The taste was a little strong from the soy sauce, so I might reduce that a little next time."

"I made these last night. They are a little bit messy to make but they were a big hit to eat. I didn't have a baking rack like the recipe calls for, so I just baked them on a cookie sheet (or two). I made 24 good-sized meatballs and still had extra meat mixture left. Hubby had two sandwiches for dinner and hit up the leftovers already for breakfast. My son liked it as a sandwich and over rice as well."

"This recipe is great. It is fairly easy to follow and make. I love the sweet & slightly tangy taste. I did find the meat mixture to wet to form balls, so added an extra pound of hamburger and 1/2 cup bread crumbs, still a little too wet but balls could be formed. I served them over spaghetti, that was okay but I think the next time I make this I will serve them over rice with a spinach salad on the side. Also I will double the sauce. This is a definite keeper and will be making again."
