dry bread crumbs

Very good, everyone loved it. I used two pounds of lean ground turkey and one pound extra lean ground beef. Next time I make this I'll cut down on the sugar. It was kind of sweet.
This recipe was easy to make. I subsituted the milk for soy milk and the meat for ground turkey. This recipe was way to sweet for my family, I think next time I will use half the sugar.
A FAVORITE AT FAMILY GATHERINGS. I HAVE MADE THESE FOR TWO SHOWERS AND THEY ARE A HIT. NO MORE RED SAUCE ON THE GRANDKIDS CHOTHES!!!!
Loved these meatballs. Followed the recipe exactly. The sauce is very tasty. I've been trying different sweet and sour meatball recipes for the last year or so trying to duplicate the flavor of the sauce I had at a banquet. Think this is the one! Don't be alarmed by the overwhelming vinegar smell/taste at first. After you combine the sauce with the meatballs and allow it to bake and reduce it takes on a whole new (delicious!) flavor.
This recipe was wonderfull for dinner. I reduced the size: 120 meatballs for dinner was way to much, but 60 was perfect!! Thanks for the great dinner!
I love this recipe! I made a few changes though. I used rice vinegar instead of cider vinegar. Rice vinegar has a mellow flavor. In addition, I used half sweet Italian sausage and half hamburger. My family loved it.
Wow, this were awesome! I used crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs, just because I didn't have any, and I used only 1 Tbsp of white vinegar like other people recommended.
Super simple to make. And they taste great. I halved the recipe and got about 50-60 meatballs. All but 6 were left after my family of four got their hands on them. They went better than the main course.
