So easy and SO delicious, these sticky glazed meatballs are sweet, savory, and just a little spicy. They have a rich, deep flavor thanks to brown sugar and your favorite BBQ sauce.



  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1/2lb ground pork
  • 1/2cup Progresso™ Panko Italian style crispy bread crumbs
  • 1/2cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1egg
  • 2cloves garlic, grated
  • Salt and pepper

Old Time Oven Peach Cobbler


  • 1/2cup brown sugar
  • 1/2cup barbecue sauce
  • 2teaspoons chile flakes (or to taste)
  • Chopped chives (for garnish)


  • 1Mix all of the meatball ingredients together and form your meatballs.
  • 2Heat a large frying pan with a little oil and gently, one by one, add in the meatballs.
  • 3After they cook for about 4 minutes, flip the meatballs and cook an additional 4 minutes. Once they’re cooked on the outside, they should be a little less delicate. Making sure none are stuck to the bottom, start tossing them in the pan a little more to cook them evenly. Drain most of the fat, leaving a few tablespoons’ worth in the pan.
  • 4Add 2 tablespoons of water to deglaze the pan, scraping up any stuck-on pieces. Add the brown sugar, adding a little more water if the pan looks too dry.
  • 5The sauce should start to bubble and look like dark caramel.
  • 6Remove from heat and add in the barbecue sauce. Stir well.
  • 7Remove from heat and add in the barbecue sauce. Stir well.
