Grandma's Applesauce Meatballs Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Realizing I had a lot of ground chuck in my freezer that needed to be used, I started looking for meatball recipes. This looked good and boy, was it! I used garlic and cheddar seasoned crotons and left out both of the other cheeses as my husband is not a big cheese fan. Never missed them but I'm sure they would not have hurt anything. Used one can of cream of celery and one of cream of potato and 1% milk (added 1 T. of flour) for the sauce because that's what I had. Very tasty sauce over either mashed potatoes or noodles and served with steamed asparagus. Definitely a keeper!

This was very good. Nice and homey. It had a creamy mild sauce and wasn't weird with the celery at all. I only had chipotle cheddar on hand so that is what I used. My hubby loved this and went back for seconds. I didn't have canned milk so I used 2% and it turned out fine. Thanks Pipster, we liked this a lot.

Really good! I added a can of mushrooms to the sauce. Will definitely spice it up next time, though. Good start with the recipe. give it a try!

These were very good. A nice change from meat loaf and other ground beef dishes. I am always looking for new things, after 40 years of cooking you kind of run out of ideas. I made these as the recipe was written. Served with salad and buttered noodles. Thanks for the recipe, from one grandmother to another :-)

These meatballs were so tastey and easy to make! They have such a comforting and homey feel without being too heavy. I did double the sauce (we like lots) and added a little sage and thyme to the sauce, but other wise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Yum, my husband said these were the best meatballs I've ever made. They are so moist & flavorful. I will admit that I subbed ingredients that I had on hand. I only had 1 pound of 85/15 sirloin. I had homemade ww seasoned bread crumbs so I used a bit less milk. I only had monterrey jack. I always sneak veggies in so I added garlic, carrots and celery with the onion & chopped very fine in the food processor. I cooked them at 325 for longer just to make sure the carrots cooked. We are eating it over ww penne. Delish! I'll make meatballs with natural applesauce often!
