Barbecue Turkey Meatballs

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.)
