1 cup (250 mL) breadcrumbs
¼ cup (50 mL) milk
2 lbs (1 kg) coarsely ground moose
1 egg
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) pepper
1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme
½ tsp (2 mL) hot sauce
4 tbsp (60 mL) finely chopped green onion
2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ tbsp (7 mL) oil
toasted sesame seeds


Makes 40 small meatballs

In a bowl, soak breadcrumbs in milk, set aside while preparing other ingredients.

In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients (except oil) and, once well mixed, form into 1 inch (2.5 cm) balls.

In a frying pan on medium-high heat, heat oil and brown meatballs on all sides, about 3-5 minutes or until well browned.


Place meatballs in a small casserole dish and pour the Honey Garlic Sauce over top, reserving a small amount. Cover and bake in a preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for 25 minutes.

To serve, drizzle some of the reserved sauce on the meatballs and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
