I did some experimenting in the kitchen today. This turned out to be a great hit with the whole family!
kelli avci kavci, this is mildly sweet. I used sugar free applesauce because hubby and I are both diabetic so, we have to try and cut back on sweetness where we can LOL. I also used Granny Smith apples which are a tart apple. I hope this helps 🙂
-Thank you for responding so quickly Suzanne. I just bought a bunch of ground beef on sale and trying to find recipes to use it lol …
I do have another question for anybody who has made this already … is this a “sweet” meatloaf?? I am not fond of apple butter but can’t remember why as it had been years since I’ve had it but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t put it in my meatloaf. But I thought I read somewhere that it was sweet. Oh I also have a bunch of apples I need to use too lol so I wanted to try this.
-We love this recipe so much! I recently had a christmas party to go to and someone asked if I could make some meatballs. So I thought why not try this recipe that way. So I did and they were awesome. The only thing I did different was left out the chopped apples and added more bread crumbs. I also used a bottle of bbq sauce and a small jar of apple butter to make sauce to put them in crockpot. It was a big hit! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
