I haven’t made meatballs in a realllyyy long time, probably at least a year. I had found amazing turkey meatballs at Sam’s Club a couple of times and I just haven’t been able to find any others that come even close. They were made with 100% turkey rather than beef and I didn’t even cook them in a sauce, they didn’t need it. I just baked them plain – they were that good! Plus, you could eat about 4 or 5 of them for the same amount of calories as you get in a regular store-bought beef meatball (and they were the same size, I promise). I have no idea what brand they were but I have not seen them for a long time. 🙁 I’ve been very sad about that, very very..
I don’t think any other store-bought meatball will ever come close in my mind, so I decided to make my own meatballs. The result was these delicious BBQ infused turkey meatballs, packed with vegetables – yes I said that right – vegetables! Along with herbs, some vegetables add a very nice, fresh flavor you don’t get in a store-bought meatball.
