  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large rimmed cookie sheet with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir Meatball ingredients until well mixed. Shape into 42 (about 1 1/2-inch) balls; place on cookie sheet. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink in center (160°F).

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, stir Sauce ingredients until well blended. Heat to boiling over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced by half (about 2/3 cup).
  • 3
    Add meatballs to sauce; stir to coat. Cook over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring and turning meatballs occasionally, until thoroughly coated in sauce.

Expert Tips

Like it hot? Add 1/4 teaspoon more red pepper flakes to the meatballs, or add up to 2 teaspoons more Sriracha to the glaze.

Wet hands slightly when rolling meatballs to prevent sticking.
