WebMD Recipe

  • 1 pound
    extra-lean ground turkey, (around 6%-8% fat)
  • 2 slices
    whole-wheat bread, finely chopped, (or 1 cup soft bread crumbs)
  • 1 large
    egg, (or 1/4 cup egg substitute, if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons
    onion, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoon
    low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon
    garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • dash or two 
    freshly ground pepper
  • 2 to 6 tablespoons
    nonalcoholic beer, chicken broth or water, (optional)
  • 1/2 cup
    chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup
    red currant jelly
  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients, mixing well with a wooden spoon or your hands. Form into about 40 bite-size meatballs.
  2. Spray a nonstick frying pan with canola cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add the meatballs, cover the frying pan and brown them for about 5 minutes.
  3. Turn the meatballs over, adding the beer or other liquid if necessary to prevent sticking. Cover and brown about 5 minutes more, or until meatballs are cooked through.
  4. Combine the chili sauce and jelly and pour over the meatballs. Simmer gently for about 10 minutes, stirring and basting the meatballs frequently until the sauce thickens nicely. Serve with toothpicks.
