Grape Jelly Turkey Meatballs

I first tried this recipe for grape jelly turkey meatballs at a graduation party. The meatballs were served in a crock pot and the host mentioned how easy it was to make.

I could not stop eating them and was thrilled I was given the simple recipe for homemade turkey meatballs, chili sauce and grape jelly. The sweet and lightly sour flavor is great as an appetizer with toothpicks, served with brown rice or in a sub.

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound ground turkey meat
  • 1 slice fresh bread, crusts removed, pulsed into crumbs or 1/4 cup corn starch (for those gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the broiler. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine the turkey with all other ingredients in a large work bowl. Form into 2 1/2 -inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Broil for 10 minutes, or until browned and almost entirely cooked through.

Parmesean, egg and parsley, I will omit the parsley next time and is reflected in the ingredients.
