I've been trying to limit my intake of sugars, salts, and fats, so I had to think of a different way to make these but still taste similar to what I remember. BBQ sauce has a lot of added sugars and salt, but it doesn't have to. I made homemade BBQ sauce for my "healthier" meatballs and they turned out delicious.
1 bag turkey meatballs (or make your own)
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
2 Tbl vinegar
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp brown mustard
1 tsp parsley
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbl Simply Fruit Apricot (or apple jelly)
- Cook meatballs according to package directions (or make your own)
- Combine all remaining ingredients for sauce.
- Pour sauce over meatballs and heat to boiling.
- Reduce to low until ready to serve.
