I’ve never made Big Guy meatballs (that I can recall). But don’t think I made the traditional Italian meatballs. That would be too predictable. This dinner got chosen in the truck on the way back from a Easter weekend at the beach. It’s a 20-minute recipe and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand. A short grocery list was the goal on Sunday.
The barbecue turkey meatballs made the house smell like I’d been slaving in the kitchen all day long. Such a comforting smell! Instead of blending up the sauce in a blender, I used my food processor which worked like a charm. I also used cinnamon instead of cloves. I used the leanest turkey I could find which is why the meatballs were drier than I would have liked. But I’m trying to watch our figures a little more carefully now that the wedding is
months weeks away. I also left out the breadcrumbs.
Big Guy was struck with an okra craving while walking around the grocery store so that’s what went on the side. Simply roasted with a drizzle of EVOO, salt and pepper.
Delicious Sunday dinner. (We had our Easter ham, potato salad, asparagus and peas on Saturday with all of my family – so don’t think we’re not into the traditional Easter dinner.)
