I posted this on Our Krazy Kitchen a couple of months ago. It is a great recipe for awesome meatballs!!
These were part of my freezer cooking day. The meatballs came together in a snap then off to the freezer until I was ready for them. I thawed them, rolled, baked, then threw them into the crock pot.
Then I made an incredibly easy tasty sauce to throw on them in the slow cooker.
Aren't they adorable!! These cooked up nicely and were delicious! We ate every bit of that sauce.
Barbecue Cola Meatballs
Adapted from Between the Lines
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
1 1/4 cups bread crumbs (I used panko)
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 (1 oz) package dry ranch style dressing mix
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 barbecue sauce
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup cola
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green or red pepper, chopped
1 tsp. seasoning salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
In a large bowl, mix together the meatball ingredients until well blended. Shape into meatball and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 turning them over half way.
Mix up the sauce ingredients in crockpot. Remove meatballs from baking sheet and place in sauce in crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, then remove lid and cook for an additional 15 minutes before serving. Mine made 40 meatballs.
