BBQ Glazed Turkey Meatballs


2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey
1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
2 eggs
2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 jar (approx. 12 oz) grape jelly or jam
1 cup barbecue sauce


Combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, onion flakes and eggs. Start to lightly brown the minced garlic in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Form meatballs and place gently into the skillet, turning often for even cooking and browning. The size of the meatball will influence how long it takes to cook and how it can be eaten. If you want to serve with cocktail skewers, you should form meatballs that are no larger than a walnut.

Combine jelly and barbecue sauce in a large saucepan, cooking over medium heat until jelly melts. Add cooked meatballs and continue heating over medium-low heat for approximately 15 minutes.

Serve in a crock pot set on low, if desired.
