  • 1/2 cups bourbon
  • 1/4 cups Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener


  1. Combine all meatball ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well
  2. Using a cookie scoop (or better yet, your hands) form meatballs out of the meat mixture
  3. Place the meatballs in a skillet or 10″ cast iron skillet and cook over medium heat
  4. As the meatballs get done, remove them from the skillet and place onto a plate with a paper towel
  5. While the meatballs are finishing, place all of the bourbon glaze ingredients in a small saucepan
  6. Bring to a boil until the bourbon smell dissipates and the sauce begins to thicken
  7. Glaze the meatballs by placing them back into the skillet and pouring glaze overtop
  8. Chow down and enjoy!
