Not your average meatball! A crazy delicious twist on a classic cocktail meatball.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly spray a large baking sheet (12x17) with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan, and heat over medium. Once bubbly and heated through, reduce heat to low, simmer for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Remove from heat, and cover to keep warm.
In a large bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients. Mix well until combined. Using a scooper, scoop meat mixture and form into balls. Place meatballs on prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Baste meatballs with about half of the sauce. Bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and baste and serve with the remaining sauce.
I buy frozen, cooked ground ham at my local meat market. You may need to ask your store's meat counter if they have it, or if they can grind some ham for you.
I use a brown sugar substitute to save calories. If you go this route, make sure to read the package measuring equivalents.
These make a tasty party appetizer, or main meal! They freeze and re-heat very well too.
