Lately I've been all about two things - barbecue sauce and the crockpot. And it seems turkey is on sale everywhere you turn right now so I took the plunge and made turkey meatballs in barbecue sauce this weekend.
1lb ground turkey
1 cup crushed crackers or breadcrumbs
1 tsp dried oregano
1 onion diced finely
salt and pepper
1 onion, finely sliced
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
Mix the meatball ingredients, taking care to not overwork. Shape into balls and place on top of the sliced onions in the slow cooker. I used my giant crockpot for this so that they all lay in a single layer on the bottom but it probably doesn't matter too much.
Mix the barbecue sauce, sugar and worcestershire sauce and cover the meatballs. Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
I served this with cheesy mashed potatoes and corn. Yum!
