Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

My husband and I raise cattle on our farm here in southwestern Ontario, so it's no surprise that we're fond of these saucy meatballs. I know your family will like them, too. —Marion Foster, Kirkton, Ontario

    Have made these mang times, our damily loves them. Last time added some fresh ginger with garlic, and a pan of veggies sauteed in a bit of sesame oil. Reduced sugar a bit, delicious!

    Nice and easy to prep and make, good appetizer or with a meal, making it for the 4th time so figured I'd better make an account and leave a review! Thanks for this, and also from Southern Ontario! Cheers :D

    Loved these! I did cut back a little on the honey and soy sauce as others mentioned. Will definitely make these again.

    love the sauce! I opted honey for maple syrup because I ran out. sauce still turned out awesome. be sure to finely chopped the onions or they turn out kindly of chunky. I used a small muffin tray to bake the meatballs. i find it holds the meatball well. will be making this very often!

    Meatball was recipe was great, all thought I didn't make the honey garlic sauce, I used Diana's Honey Garlic and cut up some red and yellow peppers and made basmati rice and it turned out so good. Meatballs were so juicy and the flavor went so well with the sauce. A keeper.

    Delish. I did cut the honey just a bit. Will make these again for sure.

    I could give this a higher rating, but 1/2 cup of honey made this way too sweet for us. Cut back the honey and enjoy the twang!
