Turkey Meatballs with Spicy-Sweet Dipping Sauce


That’s a spicy meatball…not really, it’s actually just a very plain turkey meatball, but the sauce…the dipping sauce, now that…that is spicy!

Spicy and sweet and it calls you back for more, so much more!

This is a great appetizer kind of dish. My husband makes this a lot during football season…the rest of us eat a lot of this during football season 🙂

It’s easy!

Make your favorite meatballs, we prefer turkey meatballs with this sauce. Our turkey meatballs are extraordinarily plain, but they are fantastic.

Turkey Meatballs

1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees F and put a very light coat of olive oil on the bottom of a roasting pan or pyrex baking dish.
2. Add salt and pepper to 2 lbs of 93/7 ground turkey in a bowl. Mix it up with your hands.
3. Shape the meat into the size meatballs you prefer, we like medium size.
4. Bake for about 30 minutes. My husband turns them over 15 minutes into it. I don’t. They turn out fine either way.
5. Take them out and let them settle…then stuff your face.

Dipping Sauce

1. Blend one can of chilis in adobo sauce with the amount of honey you’d like. I prefer 2 parts honey to 1 part adobo. My husband prefers equal parts.
2. Put in little side bowls, or one big bowl…eat with your meatballs.

Go root for your favorite team…GO TEAM!

Too easy!

** Here is my disclaimer. I have no idea where my husband found this recipe or if he just whipped it up. He reads recipes in magazines and searches online for recipes. He takes parts of some recipes and mixes them with others. He is a very good cook. The inventive kind, I can read and follow directions with success. He has the ability to think of new recipes. I’m not really like that. If I knew where he got this I’d certainly give credit where credit is due.

Buffalo Wing Turkey Wraps

The Girl Who Ate Everything has added a lot of great meals to our dinner table. These lettuce wraps are one we consider to be a fan-freakin’-tastic football season food.

The buffalo turkey meat is simple to make – 1/2 cup diced onion, 1 tsp minced garlic sautéed in olive oil…then add a pound of ground turkey, finish cooking and add 1/2 cup of hot wing sauce.

My husband and kids prefer these with flour tortillas, I eat them in butter lettuce leaves. Add blue cheese crumbles, chopped celery and carrot shavings…complete.

Don’t like wraps….then use it for a pizza topping with blue cheese dressing as the sauce. We brush olive oil on Naan bread and bake it at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes, then take it out and add the dressing, buffalo turkey meat, and blue cheese…bake for about 10 more minutes, or until the cheese looks as melted as you’d like it.
