'I made changes to a barbecue sauce recipe to meet my family's taste,' writes Cheryl Crowson, Sundance, Wyoming. 'When we needed a quick appetizer for a get-together, I tried the sauce over prepared meatballs, and everyone enjoyed it.'

I brought this to a Little League picnic yesterday. They were gone in less than 20 minutes. The only change I made was adding about 2 tsp. dijon mustard and putting everything in a crockpot for 2 hrs. on high. This is an easy recipe and absolutely delicious. Read More

I guess if you like Sweet and Sour you will like this. I don't, so I don't. But, I took them to a party and got a lot of compliments and they were all eaten up. That made me increase from 2 to 3 stars. I made the sauce in a slowcooker, added the meatballs and left them on low overnight. That worked well. Read More

Seriously yummy meatball recipe. I made for a Halloween party (called them Mealy Meatballs in Blood Sauce), and everyone RAVED. Will definitely make again for the Superbowl party. The only change I made was to add some brown sugar and a bit more than a dash of garlic powder. Thanks for sharing!! Read More
