Did you know there are more than 300 varietals of honey in the United States and each add their unique flavor to recipes, like this Mozzarella Stuffed Honey BBQ Meatball Sliders Recipe I used Sue Bee’s Clover Honey on. Firmenich also voted honey the 2015 Flavor of the Year, which I couldn’t agree with them more.
- 2 pounds of ground beef
- ¼ to ½ cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)
- ½ cup bread crumbs
- 1 small onion (diced)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 egg
- 1 BBQ Sauce
- ¼ cup honey
- Salt and pepper to liking
Let’s make this super yummy slow cooker mozzarella stuffed honey bbq meatball sliders:
- Combine meat, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, egg, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl and combine. It’s easiest if you use your hands and work the bread crumbs into the meat.
- Grab enough meat for your meatball, push down, so it’s almost flat in your hand and lay the cheese in the middle of the meat patty. Now close it up into a ball and pack together tightly. Do you best to make sure there is no opening for the cheese to sneak out when it gets hot?
- Place foil on a wire rack and set on top of baking pan or the top of a baking pan covered with foil. Poke holes in the bottom so the grease can drain out into a pan. Place meatballs on foil and place in the oven for about 20 minutes. The goal is to cook out most of the grease.
- Remove from oven, place in slow cooker. Add BBQ sauce, honey and 1/4 cup water.
- Allow to cook on high for 1 hour, and then turn to low for 2 to 3 hours.
- Place on your favorite rolls and enjoy!

I recently attended a media trip with the National Honey Board be sure to check out how we traveled to learn the Story of Honey.
LOVE HONEY, it can be used for almost everything, check it out:
- Substitute for sweetener
- Salad dressing
- Ideal for glazing and browning because honey adds an impressive, golden or amber color to foods.
- Mask bitterness of gluten-free flours
- Natural anti-microbial which helps to resist spoilage and extend its shelf life.
- If baking with honey, for each cup of honey you use, reduce your liquid by ¼ cup, add ½ teaspoon baking soda, and reduce your oven heat by 25 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Just because your honey crystallizes doesn’t mean it’s yucky. Gently warm and stir honey periodically until the crystal dissolve.
