My favourite meatball recipe – Honey-garlic glazed meatballs

Hey lazy girls,

This is my all-time favourite meatball recipe. It’s always my go-to when I need something that can be made  in a large batch and eaten for a few days when I know I won’t have time to cook. I normally split the batch in two and freeze half. They are so delicious, and I I find like many things, they taste better the next day. They are the perfect sweetness. and are quite firm (I love a firm meatball!). This one comes from a lady named Marion Foster that I found on allrecipes.com, but I’ve changed it up slightly to increase the amount of sauce and give it a bit more flavour. Here’s the recipe:

Honey-garlic glazed meatballs
Makes about 22

2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 cup dry italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons salt
2 pounds ground beef
8 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1.5 cups ketchup
1 cup honey
6 tablespoons soy sauce

In a large bowl combine eggs and milk. Add the bread crumbs, onion and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place in two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute garlic in butter until tender. Stir in the ketchup, honey and soy sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain meatballs; add to sauce. Carefully stir to evenly coat. Cook for 5-10 minutes.

I like to serve over rice with the extra sauce – SO GOOD! I’m going to try to make this in my slow cooker next time (My new favourite thing). I’ll post the results when I do!

Happy cooking!
