Turkey Meatballs with Barbecue Sauce

(Ginger Snap Girl’s recipe)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely diced white or sweet onions
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat leaf (Italian) parsley
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (I used Kraft’s Honey Barbecue)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350˚.  Line 2 baking sheets with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except barbecue sauce and gently mix together until fully combined.  Using a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon, portion out 1 1/2 inch size meatballs and gently roll them between your hands to round them out.  Place on baking sheets about 1 inch apart.  Bake for 8 minutes and turn meatballs using tongs.  Return to the oven and cook for an additional 6 minutes.  Remove sheets from oven and lightly brush each meat ball with 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce.  Return to oven and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Warm the remaining 3/4 cup of barbecue sauce in small saucepan or in a small bowl in the microwave.  Serve immediately.
