    This was so easy to make. The sauce was yummy enough to ladle onto my rice. My family enjoyed this.

    Husband LOOVED it! It took a little time browning before baking,but well worth it.

    I made the sauce (apricot preserves + bbq sauce) and used Lil Smokies sausages instead of meatballs. Received rave reviews from my New Year's Eve guests!
