15. BBQ Meatballs

This recipe is also inspired by the WW message boards. I tweaked it a bit. It was originally an appetizer recipe with 2 meat balls per serving, but since my house loves meatballs so much I turned it into a main dish.

These were incredibly tasty and since I doubled the recipe (we had guests over) we had leftovers for lunches. These are great no matter what you serve them with and only 6 points for 10 meatballs. It is a nice serving size for any hungry girl or guy!

BBQ Meatballs - 6 points per serving
Serves 10 -11

3lbs lean ground turkey
1 large onion finely chopped
1/4th cups parsley chopped
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp beef bouillon
2 medium cloves garlic chopped
2 cups uncooked quick oats
2 1/2 cups of your favorite BBQ Sauce
4 medium egg whites

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Combine all ingredients, except barbecue sauce, in a large-size bowl; mix well.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Shape meatball mixture into 112 (I know that sounds like so much, it took about 15 minutes) 1-inch balls; place on baking sheet.

Bake at 350ºF until cooked through, about 25 minutes. Transfer meatballs to a chafing dish or crockpot to keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat barbecue sauce over medium-high heat until hot. Pour sauce over cooked meatballs, toss gently and serve. Enjoy!
