These were wonderful! I had never used ground turkey for anything before but I absolutely love these. Even the boys were impressed.
Slow-Cooker Barbeque Turkey Meatballs
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, grated
1 stalk celery, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 large egg
1/2 cup rolled oats, not instant
2 cups barbeque sauce
1/2 cup water
Warm oil in a small skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and celery and saute until softened, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.
Add ground turkey, egg and oats. Use fingers to gently but thoroughly blend ingredients. Do not overmix. Dampen hands slightly and form mixture into about 20 1 1/2 inch meatballs.
Pour a small amount of barbeque sauce over bottom of crockpot. Add meatballs, alternating with sauce. Add 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Serves 6.
I served these with boiled corn on the cob and steamed whole green beans. It was a lovely dinner.
This recipe is from ALL YOU's Eat Well, Save Big cookbook. I didn't need to modify this at all.
