Mom's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

4 years ago

It feels like winter! I like it...because it gives me an excuse to eat a ton of comfort food! When I would come home for the holidays, my mom would make these three things for me: sweet and sour meatballs, chicken wild rice soup, and jerk chicken. These family recipes were hands down my favorites. Hearty, comforting, and when I was living 2000 miles away, these meals always reminded me of home.

I'm not going to lie - these meatballs are not the most healthy thing in the world. I tried "lightening" them up by using turkey instead of hamburger and replacing half of the brown sugar with 1/4 cup of honey. Those turned out good, but they weren't "mom good" - know what I mean?

Try out these meatballs - maybe try the "mom" version and the "healthy" version - and let me know what you think!

A Good Place to Start

Ground beef (or turkey or both), onions, garlic salt, pepper, salt, bread, tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar, gingersnap cookies
