Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Pin It

This is a dish of the most awesome meatballs in the world.

Not even kidding!

My family gets together at my sister's house every Christmas Eve 
and this dish is always requested. 
I've made it every year for 13 years, and even though I double the recipe, 
it is always the first thing to disappear.

Love the chunky bits of celery and pineapple. 
So so good. 
Trust me...once you try them, they'll be your "go to" recipe.
