Turkey Meatballs

These are a great low fat appetizer for parties. Don’t tell anyone the meatballs are made with ground turkey and no one will even notice. I slipped these by Tim and he never even noticed they were not made from ground beef.

Turkey Meatballs:

1 pound ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup low fat milk

1 egg beaten

1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup chili sauce

about 1/2 cup water
1 small jar (12 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1 1/4 teaspoon yellow prepared mustard
non stick olive oil spray

Heat oven to 400ºF. .
Mix ground turkey, onion, bread crumbs, milk, egg, salt and pepper. Shape mixture into thirty 1-inch balls. Place in lightly greased rectangular pan, 13×9 inches.
Bake uncovered about 25 minutes or until no longer pink in center and juice is clear.
About 25 minutes before serving, mix chili sauce, water, spaghetti sauce and mustard in 2-quart saucepan. Add meatballs. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until meatballs are hot.

To freeze these tasty little meatballs. Place meatballs on lightly greased cookie sheet. Freeze uncovered until firm. Place partially frozen meatballs in heavy plastic bag or freezer container. Seal, label and freeze no longer than 3 months
