Updated on November 24, 2012

B.B.Q. Turkey Meatballs

Barbecue Turkey Meatballs

I was listening to a group of people talking at a restaurant about eating healty foods but all I kept hearing was there are only a few choices to choose from like chicken, fish, or tuna, and when I asy tuna theat's salmon included......But one person did say that a lean pork chop would be nice but of corse they shot that down.

So as I was there listening with a grin on my face one of the ladies say to me is it that funny.........I then smiled and said but there are others meats that are healthy and good for you, So she asked what and I said turkey and all of a sudden they all started hollering a me who wants to cook a turkey....Then I say how about ground turkey even meat ball cooked in a crock pots for a few hours in a nice sacuce , Then every thing really got quite and the lady said to me go on and so with that I told them to get out some paper and lets put togehter a quick recipe and this is what it ended up to be ground turkey meatballs in a cranberry bbq sauce.

Barbecue Turkey Meatballs


1 can or jar (16 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce

1/2 cup barbecue sauce of your choice

1 medium egg whites only

1 pound lean ground turkey breast

1 green onion with tiom sliced

1 tablespoon of grated orange peel

1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
