how to make brown sugar turkey meatballs

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and grease so the meatballs don’t stick.

I like to grease mine with olive oil cooking spray.

Step 2: In a small bowl, combine the ground turkey, eggs, Italian bread crumbs, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, garlic salt, minced garlic, pepper, salt, and oregano.

You could do this with an electric hand mixer, wooden spoon, or your hands. I found it easiest to combine it all with my hands. This allowed me to really mix everything together

Step 3: Roll into 1 inch balls and place on covered and greased cookie sheet.

Step 4: Bake for 8 minutes, then flip and move the meatballs around and continue baking for another 10 minutes.

Step 5: In a small bowl, for the glaze, mix brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, white vinegar, and milk in a large saucepan on medium high heat until it is fully mixed in and begins to thicken.

Step 6: Place the cooked turkey meatballs in the pan and mix so all of them are completely coated.

This will also allow the outside of the meatballs to get a little hard, and crispy on the outside.

Step 7: Once all the meatballs are covered in the sauce, take off the heat and serve warm.
Serve with rice or vegetables.

could i make these meatballs with ground beef?

You most definitely could make this recipe, using ground beef. Ground beef and ground turkey are extremely similar, however, ground beef tends to cook a bit faster, so be sure to watch them, that they don’t get burned.
