BBQ Turkey Meatballs Recipe

BBQ Turkey Meatballs
These BBQ turkey meatballs are a healthier alternative to using ground beef. Preparing this recipe is very easy—the ingredients for the meatballs are mixed in a bowl and then rolled into small balls. Then they are placed into the oven and baked until they are fully cooked. A bbq sauce is prepared for a glaze. The bbq sauce combines a pre-made bbq sauce with ingredients such as ketchup and mustard. These meatballs go great served for dinner or as an appetizer. Enjoy.
