Hoisin-Honey Glazed Cocktail Size Meatballs


 We're heading into the holiday season and festive parties are sure to in everyone's future. I thought these little Hoisin-Honey Glazed Cocktail Meatballs would be a perfect little bite. They are quick and easy and you can make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze them so you're ready at anytime for unexpected guests.  I love the addition of some toasted sesame seeds because they give the perfect little crunch and "nutty" flavor that compliments these sweet, savory and spicy little appetizers.  

For the meatballs:
2lbs lean ground meat **I used a combo of chicken and pork
2Tbs of ginger/garlic paste (or 1Tbs of each separately grated)
2Tbs of Soy Sauce
1 Tbs of Chinese Rice Wine (or sherry)
1 tsp of Sesame Oil
 Red Chili Flakes to taste
 Black Pepper to taste
