NO! Granny's Not Drunk!!!

The Meatballs are!!!

These Drunken Meatballs are from my Polish mother-in-law's mother...

Theses are different and very good!

***The recipe can be made as written, or Cook the alcohol off in the drippings by adding alcohol first.... the taste is the same.

*** This is also good as a party meatball... For party Meatballs, add onion to the meatballs and finely mince onion for the sauce.
