A New Twist On Meatballs

It’s been difficult finding time to write lately but as I sat at the computer this morning I found some time and thought it is a good opportunity to post a recipe.
A few weeks ago I wanted to make something different  for the annual Mother child banquet at our church so I searched the refrigerator and came up with hamburger and Italian sausage so I thought meatballs but not your normal everyday meatballs I wanted to try something different.
So I kept looking and thought how about an Asian style meatballs with some onion powder, garlic powder, ginger, honey, salt and pepper.  Well that was a start and then I thought about adding Sweet baby Rays BBQ sauce for the topper!  Yeah that sounds like an excellent idea.
So that is exactly what I did just mix that all together and you get some really awesome kickin meatballs
They were so juicy and with the gooey sauce which reminded me of General Tso’s  yummo who doesn’t like General Tso’s sauce right?

So here’s the Ingredients:
1 lb. of lean hamburger
1 lb. of Italian sausage removed from casing (make sure you have a Gluten Free brand)

(Sauce Recipe)
1 tsp. of onion powder
1 tsp. of garlic powder
1/2 tsp. of  ground ginger
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. of Honey
1 large bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce

Preheat the oven to 350F
Mix well together in a large bowl the meat, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger, salt and peper and form into balls, I make mine smaller than meatballs that way you can use them as an appetizer or serve them with pasta it makes for a very different spaghetti very good.
After forming into balls put them into a baking dish an bake at 350F for about 40 minutes without covering.
The meatballs should be nicely browned on the outside and well done and juicy on the inside.
While the meatballs are cooking take a large bottle of Sweet Baby Rays and add honey to it also add equivalent onion, garlic, ginger powders that are listed above to the sauce.  When meatballs are done cooking place into serving bowl and drizzle with sauce coat evenly and enjoy!
The sauce also works very well over chicken.
