We had people over the other night to watch a UFC fight (someone please explain how I get sucked into things like fights? Why was I cheering?) and these little BBQ meatballs were a perfect party food. Filing these into my mental index for superbowl party foods.
Sidenote: I had a massive home-made bbq sauce fail so served these with the bbq sauce we had on hand (Sweet Baby Ray's - OMG DELICIOUS but def not paleo friendly). Next time I'm going to try Skinny Ms' barbecue sauce recipe.
Servings: 20 medium sized meatballs
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins + 15 mins
- 1 lb lean ground turkey ($4.00)
- 1/2 onion, minced ($.50)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup almond flour (or any flour you have on hand, this is just to make sure they stick together)
- 1 Tablespoon Paprika
- 1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
- 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
- 2 Cups Paleo BBQ Sauce + 1 Tablespoon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray down with coconut oil spray or any nonstick spray you prefer.
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients except the 2 Cups bbq sauce (DO add the 1 Tablespoon of BBQ sauce). I do the mixing with my hands.
Form 2 inch balls and put onto the baking sheet and heat in the oven for 40 minutes.
Once the meatballs are cooked, combine the meatballs and 2 Cups bbq sauce in a medium sized saucepan. Simmer on low heat for 15 minutes, mixing constantly.
What is your favorite healthy party food? Anyone have good/easy recipes for barbecue sauce?
