This was really good! I made it just as it was written. Sometimes I combine things from recipes I like into one. That's what I'm doing tonight. Your meatballs are addicting! Thank you for sharing it with us!

OMG These are good. The meatballs are moist and the sauce to die for. I don't make them often because when I do, I find it hard to stopping eating them. Serving size three meatballs, um NO!

These are delicious! We like to make the meatballs ahead of time and then freeze them. They are the perfect go-to appetizer or main dish!

I pretty much followed the recipe but cut it in half and now I know the secret ingredient to make a moist meatball. I browned the meatballs in butter and w-sauce, then made a brown gravy with the bits in the pan and some homemade chicken stock instead of the ketchup sauce. I poured the brown gravy over the meatballs and baked at 300 until bubbly....yummy!

I just made these the other day for a pot luck party. Everyone raved at how good they were and wanted the recipe. Thumbs up from me too!!! Reminds me of some my Mom made me and my sister when growing up.

I loved this. I even was able to sneak some celery in there with out anyone noticing. I also put a splash of hot-sauce in the sauce.

My husband and I don't usually like turkey, but I made these because we are trying to eat healthier. They were delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!
