Orange Glazed Garlic Meatballs

IMG_9174 - Version 2

Meatballs are one of my husband’s favorite meals. I had to include them in our Tapas Date Night that I put together in our backyard for some much needed quality time.

These meatballs are so savory and sweet at the same time. We love a lot of garlic, and the orange glaze fit right into our small plates dining for the night.  The orange glaze is really easy to prepare and makes such a difference. Meatballs are such yummy meal, but this gives it another spin for your regular meatball. You will not be able to stop eating these.

For this recipe, you will want to use a softer peach.

This muffin recipe is adapted from my master muffin mix, which uses buttermilk and sour cream to keep the muffins moist for several days after baking. There is a little extra baking powder in this recipe to help the muffins rise nice and tall.
