  • 1.5 lbs hamburger meat
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 1 tbs chopped onion dried or fresh
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 2 tbs liquid smoke
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • ½ c honey
  • ¼ c mustard*



  1. In a small bowl, combine all the dry seasonings.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the raw hamburger, eggs, dry seasoning mix, liquid smoke, and Worcestershire sauce and mix thoroughly. Roll into ~2” balls.
  3. In a large skillet or fry pan, heat oil over medium high heat.
  4. Once oil is hot, place each meatball in the skillet. Turn each meatball every minute or so to brown all sides. After the meatballs look done, cut one open and make sure it is cooked through. If not, go ahead and turn down the heat on the stove top and cover pan with a lid. Let the meatballs cook for several more minutes, checking for doneness.
  5. Once done, dip in sauce of choice (I recommend the honey mustard sauce!) and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*I used Dijon mustard for this, but if you only have yellow mustard that works too!
