Comfort Meatballs by Ree Drummond

On our meatball recipe quest we whipped up a double batch of these tasty comfort meatballs (recipe by Ree Drummond - The Pioneer Woman - Food Network) last night.  Alex and I both liked the tangy sauce but Anthony thought the flavor was too heavy in the vinegar department for his taste buds.  He is more of a brown gravy sort of guy.  Still the meatballs were incredibly moist and I would highly recommend the base of the recipe even if you select a different sauce.
