Honey-Lime Meatballs

These mini meatballs, made with a combo of lean ground beef and spicy turkey sausage are browned in a skillet (or you can bake them) then finish cooking in the slow cooker. After they are cooked, you pour a delicous honey-lime sauce over them and watch them dissapear1

I mentioned last week that I’m guest blogging this month for Better
Homes and Gardens! The task was simple, test out a few of their recipes
adding my own spin to share on their blog, Delish Dish.

I was intrigued by these meatballs since the superbowl is around the corner! The orginal sauce used molasses, but honey was all I had and it worked out great. This makes about 60 mini meatballs.
