Sweet and Spicy Meatballs

Ann Lombardi


There is a Just A Pinch Blue Ribbon recipe by Edith Kehoe titled Holiday Meatballs. I made my meatball recipe based on her recipe. The Test Kitchen raved about Edith's recipe so I made my own variations using the orange marmalade with champagne and sriracha hot sauce.
