  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt

Mix together with your hands and form into 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet. Bake meatballs 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked fully. While the meatballs are baking, we going to make the glaze. Combine the following in a small saucepan:

  • ¼ cup Sriracha
  • 3 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking continuously. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes (the sauce will start to thicken) then toss with the meatballs. You can garnish with green onions, shaved ginger and/or sesame seeds, totally up to your preference!
