    Taste great. Had to double the sauce though.

    It turned out good. The sauce is my favorite. Some people don’t like sweet food but I don’t mind one bit. Great meal.

    So simple and so delicious! It was hard to not eat the whole dish. We made enough for 3 nights for 2 people. We will definitely be making again!!

    It turned out really great. We all loved them. I would say double the sauce at least though.
    I just made the sauce but it was delicious!

    This was so delicious. I used ground turkey to make it and I didn’t change anything in the recipe. Will make again!

    It was a great combination of flavor. I used bison meat instead of ground beef and they turned out really tender

    It turned out great, I added extra seasoning such as garlic, pimento peppers and all little more milk as I read one review saying that it was a bit dry. It turned out moist and delicious.

    I found the meatballs somewhat dry. I think marinading them in the sauce might help in the future.

    I made this with the turkey and beef as she recommends. I did use Panko instead of oatmeal. I was concerned with how wet the meatballs were even after adding extra Panko but they turned out perfect. Will definitely make this again, quick to make on a weeknight.
