  3. Form the beef mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls and place them on a baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.
  4. Pour the honey in a small bowl and heat it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to soften it. Brush the honey onto the meatballs.
  5. Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake the meatballs for 15-20 minutes, until cooked through.
