As a family of five a with a few picky eaters, it’s not often when we have a flavour we all agree on. The one we do though, is honey garlic! A little bit sweet and a little bit savoury, honey garlic sauce is a big hit with both the adults and the kids. From honey garlic meatballs to chicken wings, it’s our favourite flavour and I know that when I serve it, everyone is walking away with a full tummy!

Honey Garlic Meatballs make a tasty appetizer on their own, they are perfect for bringing to potlucks, holiday parties or game day parties like the Super Bowl. You can also make them for an easy weeknight meal over rice or noodles as a main dish. I love to serve them on a bed of rice with a nice fresh side salad. 

If you want to dress your meatballs up a little, garnish with fresh chopped parsley or sesame seeds.

Can I Use Frozen Meatballs?

Yes! If you are rushed for time or just not interested in making your own meatballs from scratch, go ahead and use the frozen meatballs you have on hand. Just cook the meatballs as directed on the package and add the meatballs to the homemade sauce. The honey garlic sauce is super easy and quick to make and will turn boring frozen meatballs into something delicious.

Comments

  1. They look yummy but since I prefer a little less sweetness I would probably modify the honey garlic sauce.
