Honey Garlic Meatballs

I make this meal about every 6 weeks (or more!) for my family because it is my kids’ favourite meal by far. Even my can-be-picky toddler always asks for seconds of this meal. I don’t know what makes this meal all that special, but it is definitely a favourite around here!

Prep time:  15 mins

Cook time:  35 mins

Total time:  50 mins


  • 2 lbs extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 cup quick-rolled oats (or bread crumbs)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (I use 2 tsp Garlic Plus instead of the garlic salt and powder)


  • 4 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce


  1. Preheat your oven to 375ºF.
  2. Mix together ground beef, quick-rolled oats, eggs, milk and garlic seasonings together by hand or in a stand mixer with paddle attachment.
  3. Line a baking sheet(s) with parchment paper and place meatballs on it and cook for about 30-35 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle.


  1. Place all the sauce ingredients: pressed garlic cloves, ketchup, honey and soy sauce—in a large sauce pan and heat through.
  2. Add cooked meatballs to sauce, toss and serve!
