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
While it looks complicated, this attractive meatball-filled ring is really very easy to assemble. My family loves tacos, and we find that the crescent roll dough is a nice change from the usual tortilla shells or chips. There are never any leftovers when I serve this at a meal or as a party appetizer!

Convenience items, including bottled barbecue sauce and canned pineapple and cranberry sauce, speed preparation of this sweet and tangy main dish. It's a snap to throw together, yet tastes like it took a lot of work. My family loves its Hawaiian flavor.

These no-fuss meatballs make a marvelous main meal...or serve them as an appealing appetizer. For even quicker preparation, make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze. Then thaw, combine with the creamy sauce and warm in a chafing dish.
We added 2 tablespoons of Ready Mix Gravy to this saucy recipe from Krista Frank of Rhododendron, Oregon. "You can top the meatballs with the gravy or use the gravy as a dipping sauce," suggests Krista.
"This recipe relies on ingredients we always have on hand and doesn't dirty many dishes," reports Sheryl Ludeman of Kenosha, Wisconsin. "While the tender meatballs cook in the microwave, boil the noodles on the stovetop to get this saucy entree on the table in minutes," she suggests.
Mom fixed this Swedish meatball recipe for all sorts of family dinners, potluck suppers and PTA meetings. The scent of browning meat is intoxicating. Add to that the sweet smell of onions caramelizing, and everyone’s mouth starts watering. —Marybeth Mank, Mesquite, Texas
When I fixed this flavorful recipe for the first time, it was a welcome change from some of our regular ho-hum dinner menus. My husband, Eric, is not a real big stir-fry eater, and our two young sons, 6 and 3, are pretty picky- but they make sure there are no leftovers whenever I serve this dish!—Andrea Busch, Brackenridge, Pennsylvania
These are a favorite at parties and gatherings. The recipe is easy...and the meatballs can be made well ahead of time and frozen until needed. I think what makes them taste so good is the sauce. —Nathalie Guest, Caledon, Ontario
