    I like to use BBQ sauce also but hubby doesn't like them that way. But when I am doing a potluck and take meatballs which is all the time...in fact this Saturday we have a big family party happening (sweet 16, cousins son is turning 15 and Cousins 20th wedding anniversary all rolled into one) but I buy Heinz Chili Sauce and grape jelly and heat them both up and simmer the meatballs in it. I think they may be called cocktail meatballs. But....if you make them without her seeing what you are putting in the sauce...she won't even know that there is the heinz chili sauce. You can also use jellied cranberry sauce instead of the grape jelly. It makes them taste like sweet and sour..OH So good. LOL

    I used to make meatballs with canned or jarred beef gravy. My kids all loved it.

    I make a sweet & sour sauce. It's always a hit!

    1/2 c. brown sugar + 1 Tbsp. cornstarch, whisked together in a saucepan.

    Add:
    13 oz. can pineapple chunks with juice
    1/3 c. cider vinegar
    1 Tb. soy sauce
    1 green pepper, chopped.
    Add cooked meatballs, bring to a boil over medium heat, serve over noodles or rice.

    Yum!

    PlainPat,
    You can use a muchroom soup with your meat balls. Add a half can of milk with soup. It is great.

    I was going to suggest this, I didn't know about the jellied cranberry thank you, I'll be trying that, sounds delish. When I first introduced the grape jelly and my daughter and her family loved it so much it turned into a once a week meal, over rice.

    Sweet/Sour was my thought also...

    I've gotten lazy in my old age...get ready made meatballs from Safeway (here on the West Coast) and add it to whatever sauce I happen to be dealing with.

    The idea of a variety of several sauces is great..each can have their favorite topping...

    Teriyaki is also good for those who like that.
