Clean Eating Sweet & Sour Meatballs
(Makes approximately 48 meatballs, but this can vary greatly depending on the size you make them.)
3 pounds lean, ground turkey meat
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 (9 ounce) jar apricot 100% fruit spread, no sugar added
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper, or spray them with a light coat of olive oil using an oil sprayer.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix well.
Using your hands, roll small, walnut sized meatballs and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through. A meat thermometer should read between 165-175 degrees F.
While they are in the oven, put all the glaze ingredients into a small pot and warm over low-medium heat. Stir constantly.
When the meatballs are done, put them into a large mixing bowl (please don’t burn yourself!) and pour the glaze over them. Mix gently to coat the meatballs.
Note: If you cannot find apricot fruit spread, pick any flavor you’d like, so long as it’s 100% fruit. It will still be really tasty.
