These are some of the best meatballs I've ever made...always a hit. Anywhere I've ever taken them I've always come home with an empty pot. Another plus, the ingredients are in most pantries. Nothing extravagant. Can be served over rice, as I did tonight, or used as an appetizer.

For a party, I would definitely double the recipe. They will go fast! I've also used the sauce on wings...yum!

Just in time for Super Bowl! :)

Enjoy!

Bake

Ingredients

2 lb
80 / 20 ground beef
1/2 c
minced onion
2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper
2
eggs
3/4 c
milk
1 1/4 c
Italian bread crumbs

SAUCE

10 - 12 clove
garlic, sliced or minced
2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
honey
3/4 c
ketchup
1/4 c
soy sauce, low sodium

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 500 Degree F.

Line a large baking sheet with foil. I spray it as well.

Mix all ingredients together, well.
2Roll into balls about the size of a walnut or smaller. Place on sheet pan. Can place fairly close together.
3Place in oven and bake for 12 - 15 minutes, or until browning and baked through.

Set aside and make sauce.
4In a dutch oven, over low - medium heat, melt butter. Add garlic and stir every few seconds to make sure it doesn't burn. You just want it soft.
5Add the ketchup, honey and soy sauce. Stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat, simmer covered for about 10 minutes.
6Add the meatballs, coating each with sauce. Heat though for about 5 minutes. Serve hot over rice or alone.

If using for a party, place meatballs in a crock pot and keep on low or warm.

Enjoy! They are some very tasty meatballs.
