Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Sweet & Sour Meatballs
I really try hard to find recipes that give ground turkey flavor and this recipe nailed it.  It has a bit of a kick with a small amount of sweetness from the pineapple.

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

1 lbs. of lean ground turkey
1/2 cup of oatmeal (place in food processer and run for 30 seconds to give the feel of bread crumbs)
8 oz. of fresh pineapple(finely chopped)
1/2 cup of green onions
1 Tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce
1 Teaspoon of dry mustard
3/4 cup of low sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup of chili sauce
3 tablespoons of rice vinegar
2 tablespoons of Agave
2 tablespoons of wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all ingredients for meatballs in a medium bowl and mix well.  Roll into 1oz meatball size. Line baking sheet with foil and place meatball on foil then place pan in oven.  bake 25 to 3o minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and whisk until flour has incorporated in the sauce.  Place the heat on medium/high  and stir until the sauce comes to a low boil.  At that time reduce heat to a simmer, and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.  Pour sauce over meatball and gently toss to coat meatballs.

-This recipe can be used as a meal or an appetizer just place a toothpick in it and serve.
