These garlic honey barbecue meatballs are so delicious and really easy to make. Think of it as a sauce you would add to chicken wings, but add to meatballs instead! I typically like to serve these meatballs as an appetizer, but sometimes I do serve them as a meal along with rice and broccoli. All you have to do is form the meatballs, sear them, add the sauce, and then bake in the oven. A crockpot also would work! They are sure to be a crowd pleaser, but if you do have some leftovers, they freeze and reheat really well.
