Honey Garlic Appetizer Meatballs

Honey Garlic Appetizer Meatballs created by reena23

Been making these for years always receiving rave reviews from family and friends. There is quite a bit of garlic in the recipe, but after being sauteed the flavor soaks into the meatballs and sauce.

    This was just good for me, but for My Nephew who has only had store bought loved it and had two helpings, my Husband is generally not a big eater and he had 2 helpings, same with my Mother in law, So I think it fair to give it 5 stars since it was just my "taste", Oh and I made it just as written except I didn't slice my garlic I minced it :)

    I served this on top of rice to make a meal. <br/>This is a great recipe. I was a little leary about adding milk to the mix and it didn't look all or that appetizing. It turned out great. The milk allowed the meatballs to stay moist. I used this recipe for dinner instead of an appetizer for dinner. I changed the recipe just a little. I seasoned my ground turkey a little with seasoning salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a little crushed red peppers. I added a little hickory bbq sauce to the mix which gave it great flavor. To give it some heat I added crushed red peppers to the sauce as well. I used ground turkey which was great. After I added the meatballs to the sauce. I cut up a red, green, yellow pepper and onion and sauteed them in olive oil in a separate skillet. I also had some canned pineapple chunks and I drained the the pineapples and cut them up a little smaller and added them to the mix. This gave it an Asian Fusion. (If I had some sesame seeds I would have probably sprinkled that in the mix as well). <br/>Great dish for a party or dinner....YUM!!!

    LOVED THIS RECIPE!! It was super tangy in my opinion so i added about 3 Tbs of grape Jelly to the sauce and that really smoothed things out (everything was followed to a T!)
