These meatballs were easy to make and so was the sweet and sour sauce. We had a little trouble with the bread crumbs clumping together and not mixing in so well but it didn't affect the great flavor.

These were great! We had them on top of mashed potatoes. That's the best pic I could get. All heck was breaking loose at the time. I'll make these again.
