This one's from Better Homes and Gardens. Delicious spicy and a little sweet Chinese influence and flavor. Took these to a Memorial Day's party and had no leftovers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Tear bread slices into bite sized pieces and add to bowl. Stir to coat and let sit 10 minutes. Add ground chuck, garlic, pepper, salt, and cayenne. Make meatballs (I came out with 28).
  2. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Cook at 325 F for about 10 minutes. Turn once. Cook an additional 10 minutes. Drain.
  3. Combine every other ingredient except green onions. Add to a pan and cook until thickened stirring constantly. Pour over meatballs. Add chopped green onions.
  4. The original recipe called for frying the meatballs, but I like baking them instead and draining off the grease. Use whichever method you prefer.

I made this recipe with ground turkey and baked the meatballs in a greased 9x13-in pan at 350 degrees for 15-20 mins. The sauce is sweet with just enough spice.
