Brown Sugar BBQ Meatballs

Whether you devour them as an appetizer or alongside your favorite side dish — these meatballs are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Though the exact origin on this dish is unknown, the meatball has evolved far beyond spaghetti's spherical counterpart. Though they are often made with a host of ground meats including beef and pork — I chose to put a lighter spin on the buffet classic through the use of lean ground turkey.

Lean ground turkey, fresh herbs and aromatics are combined to form delicate these meatballs. Which are then coated in a luscious brown sugar, tomato-based BBQ Sauce.

The harmonious blend of ketchup, brown sugar and soy sauce among other ingredients is what elevates this typically 3 element dish. Though the process might take a bit longer, the end result it so much more satisfying.
