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

  • 2 eggs

  • ¾ cup milk

  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs

  • ½ cup finely chopped onion

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • ¾ cup ketchup

  • ½ cup honey

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
