A low calorie meatball that has been dipped in a homemade spicy mango glaze.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 35
  • ½ cup onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • ½ lbs. lean ground beef
  • ½ lbs. lean ground pork
  • 1½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground pepper
  • For the Mango Glaze:
  • 1¼ cups mango, peeled and cubed (you can use frozen too)
  • ½ jalapeno
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup honey
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or greased foil
  3. In a large bowl, add onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, ground beef, ground pork, crushed peppers, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. (I used my hands to mix it)
  4. Roll meat balls into 1" balls and place onto prepared baking sheet. (I used a small cookie scoop to make evenly sized meatballs)
  5. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes until golden in color and the meat is cooked through.
  6. Meanwhile to make mango sauce, add all remaining ingredients into a blender or food processor. Process until smooth and well combined.
  7. Add the mango sauce to a medium sauce pan and cook on medium-low heat until thick. About 5 minutes.
  8. Place a toothpick into meatballs and dip into mango glaze. Serve on a platter. For an extra boost of flavor, add a little bit of the mango sauce to your platter.
I had leftover sauce, so the calories maybe less.
