Meatballs with hoisin sauce and whiskey glaze
Hoisin sauce, also called Chinese barbecue sauce, adds a lot of flavor and helps thicken this Asian-inspired frosting.

- 1/3 cup quick-cooking oatmeal 75 mL
- 1/3 cup green onion, finely chopped (with its green and white parts) 75 mL
- 1 medium jalapeño pepper, finely chopped (with seeds)
