BBQ Turkey Meatballs
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1- 1.5 pounds ground turkey
  • ½ cup onion, very finely minced
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup BBQ sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (not totally required but makes for much easier cleanup!).
  2. In a large bowl, using your hands, mix together all the ingredients except the BBQ sauce and oil.
  3. Mix in 3-4 tablespoons of the BBQ sauce; enough to help it bind and add flavor. If you feel like your mixture is too moist add more breadcrumbs.
  4. Heat the oil in the skillet.
  5. Roll the turkey mixture into 1½ inch balls and drop into the heated skillet in batches (I cook about 8 at a time) Roll them around after a minute so they brown relatively evenly. Remove the browned meatballs to the prepared baking sheet and repeat until they are all browned.
  6. Spoon the remaining BBQ sauce over each meatball and bake for 15-20 minutes, until they are cooked through.
  7. Serve with more BBQ sauce if you're feeling saucy.
I usually get about 36 meatballs from this recipe.
