Here is another appetizer idea for you to try out this weekend. Just like my hummus recipe, tuck this one away to use all year round. In fact, this is one of my favorite appetizers for a Christmas party, as it is ALWAYS a hit! My teenage son also eats these for an afternoon snack, and I think they would make a fantastic meatball sandwich.
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup oats
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 TB minced garlic
1 egg white
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce
1 1/2 cups no-sugar added applesauce
Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil. Blend oats into a fine flour. Combine oat flour, ground turkey, onion, garlic, and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Divide into 20 equal portions, roll into balls, place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.Remove meatballs from oven and place in crockpot. Mix together the BBQ sauce and applesauce and pour over meatballs. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.
