Tangy BBQ Meatballs

I always have ground turkey in my freezer or fridge and keep an eye out for new ways to use it. I came across this recipe from Momma Hen on Tasty Kitchen and just the name "Tangy" in the title sold me. These meatballs are extremely easy and perfect for a night you just want a quick dinner. They are savory and filling. I served them over brown rice, but they would be great on their own or even as an appetizer.

For the meatballs:
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil (I used fresh)
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
For the sauce:
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon sugar

For the meatballs:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, black pepper, oregano, basil, and garlic and mix well. Form into golf-ball sized meatballs and place on a greased baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and cooked through.
For the sauce:
Mix all sauce ingredients well in s small bowl. Place meatballs and sauce in a saucepan over medium low heat. Mix well and keep warm until ready to serve.

  1. I tried these tonight and it reminded me of an SNL skit with Alec Baldwin! Terpstra's Tasty Balls! Sorry...I couldn't help it.

    On the serious side, these were great. Next time I will make them a little smaller than golf balls and use them as an appetizer.

    I also think the actual meatball would substitute very nicely for a mini meatball sandwich with marinara, potato rolls and provolone. The Pioneer Woman has a great recipe:
