Loretta Yoder’s Meatballs

Here is the first recipe from Grandma R’s Recipe Book. I’m going to do things a bit different in order to share more recipes with you all.

I’ll be choosing a variety of recipes I’m most excited about and sharing them before I have tried them. Once I try it (or one of you do), I’ll come back to add any tips as well as pictures. Hopefully I will also be able to find some information on Loretta Yoder.

Check out these ingredients! Have you ever heard of using sauerkraut in meatballs? I do think I will at least drain it and maybe rinse the sauerkraut. What would you do? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook. I’d love to hear from you.

Grandma R made notes on how to convert this to a Crock-Pot recipe. When I try it I will try it as written. Or possibly I will brown the meatballs first.
