Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Delicious!! I started out making this thinking, this is so weird putting sweet potatoes in meatballs...but let's see how they turn out. Well, within the first couple bites, I was told these need to be in regular dinner rotation!! I totally agree! These are fantastic! The dressing adds such amazing flavor too. I made these with ground beef rather than turkey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different But Delicious! When I saw this recipe I was a little skeptical? So I gave it to my sister for her to try first. She has made these meatballs at least 4 times since I gave her the recipe. When I made them at home I left off the Vidalia Onion Dressing, and used Bayou Bourbon Glaze instead. WOW! Sweet with just a little heat!
