Even the kids liked them (at first they were a little hesitant to eat them because of the 'green stuff' - green onion, but we had them try one piece and after that there was no stopping them).

¼ cup hoisin sauce
¼ cup dry bread crumbs3 tablespoons finely minced green onions
2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Mix together all of the above ingredients in a large bowl (a clean had works best for this), place meat balls on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cook at 400F convection for 18-20 minutes, or until done. Cooking time will depend on the size of the meat ball.
