Serves 12

Ingredients: 

1 Pound ground pork, chicken, turkey or mild Italian sausage 
½ Cup minced onion 
2 Cloves minced garlic 
2 Tablespoons olive oil 
2 Tablespoons Argentina Gold “Kiss of Heat” Gourmet Hot Sauce

For the Glaze

2 tablespoons honey 
1 teaspoon Kiss of Heat 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees. 
  2. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil to preheated skillet then add onion and garlic. Cook 2-3 minutes or until onions are translucent. Set aside to cool to room temperature in a medium mixing bowl, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Add ground pork or Italian sausage, egg, breadcrumbs, and Kiss of Heat sauce to onions and garlic in the bowl. Using hands or a wooden spoon, mix until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Form into 1-inch balls, placing on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
