Not your ordinary meatballs. Brown sugar gives it the sweetness and the lemon juice gives it the sour. With the rest of the ingredients adding flavors that will melt in your mouth goodness.

Simple to make and is perfect for a Ladies Luncheon or party. Serve up to 8 people so if you need more, just double the recipe.
