Knott’s Boysenberry Meatball Recipe

Recipe courtesy of Knott’s

Knott's Boysenberry Festival

While at the Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival this weekend, the boysenberry meatballs were one of my favorite dishes that I sampled. The meat was juicy, tender, and tantalized my taste buds. But, it was the sauce that made them some of the best meatballs that I have ever had before. Our friends at Knott’s Berry Farm were so generous to share their secret meatball recipe with us so that families can enjoy them at home for years to come. Every time that you serve the Knott’s boysenberry meatballs with your children, all the wonderful memories of your visit will come back.
