I wanted to make a meatball recipe out of readily available items that was really easy and great. This what I came up with and I'm asked to make them often.

Made this for a party we had ystrday. Because u mentioned ur g'mas chili sce, I decided I wanted to try both, so I made the homemade sauce the nite b4. It took a lot longer to cook then I thought it would take & I had to keep adding sugar bc it seemed so vinegary. To be so honest I thought it wasn't going to come out right bc it jus didn't seem like it was coming out the way u describe that it should. I halved the amt of sauces & split the meatballs between 2 pots.

The ultimate taste testing surprised me....evry1 agreed the meatballs w/the homemade chili sce was the best!

Going to be having a big family get 2gether in about a month, so I'll be making this then. I'm going to look for the store bought chili sce u suggest in the recipe (which I noticed that it's actually spelled "Homade"), I think I've seen it in a store here b4. I'm thinking mayb I'll do 2 batches, 1 w/Homade & 1 w/ur g'mas recipe :) It'll be interesting & fun :D
