Honey Garlic Meatballs

We made 1/2 this recipe and made 20 meatballs---5 meatballs was 1 serving as a meal. The girls LOVED these and there was plenty of sauce. Will make these again--maybe as appys for a football party!

Honey Garlic Meatballs

2 lbs lean ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 TB dried onion flakes
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp garlic powder

2 TB butter
12 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 1/2 cups ketchup,
1/2 cup lite soy sauce
1 TB hoisin sauce
3/4 cup of honey (one small bear)
1 tsp red pepper flakes or more to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheets with foil and then spray with cooking spray. For this party sized recipe, you will need 3 large sheet pans.

Combine salt, pepper, breadcrumbs, onion flakes, garlic powder, ginger, and milk into a large bowl. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes. Add eggs and ground beef.

Roll meat mixture into 1/2 ounce balls. I use a pampered chef small scoop to portion them out .

Bake for 20 minutes at 400.
Melt the butter in a large skillet; saute garlic until tender. Combine ketchup, honey, hoisin, red pepper flakes and soy sauce; add to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 5 minutes. Add meatballs. Simmer, uncovered, until the sauce thickens and the meatballs are lightly glazed.

I cook the meatballs and make the sauce. In a very large bowl I toss the balls with the sauce and then transfer to a crockpot and turn on low to keep warm.
