Because this sauce is so divine the recipe makes a double batch. A double batch can be made by each guest but requires a 7 litre/7 quart slow cooker or dutch oven. In a group setting it is suggested that 2 guests make one recipe just divide vegetables and sauce between 2 pots and guests can roll their own meatballs. This recipe works well started in the morning and cooking in the slow cooker for 6 hours on high or simmering on the stove for 3 hours. Flavours are fantastic made a day ahead.
This meal is best made just before serving. If making gluten free just confirm there is no gluten in the sausage and chicken broth.
This meal is great served with green beans or asparagus and sour cream is optional. You will need to purchase a cheesecloth to strain your grated potatoes this is the key for the latkes to stay together.
