I took a plunge and made sweet & spicy turkey meatballs in the crockpot. They turned out great so I thought I’d share the steps with all of you!
- Make meatballs. I used turkey, but you can use whatever type of meat/poultry that you’d like. You can also use premade frozen meatballs too!
- Make sauce. You’ll need, BBQ sauce, jelly and spices. I combined equal parts of strawberry preserves (no added sugar!) with 3 different type of BBQ sauce (we had a lot of open jars in the fridge). I added in cayenne pepper, paprika and chili powder for additional flavors. I mixed it all together and added more jelly / BBQ until I liked it.
- Add the meatballs to the crock pot and pour the sauce on top.
- Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Each crockpot cooks differently so check on the meatballs.
That’s it! We had ours with rice and broccoli for a few dinners during the week. Let me know below if you try this / how you make yours!
