2 pounds lean ground turkey
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup dry minced onion
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1 tsp EACH garlic pwdr, onion pwdr, salt
1/2 tsp EACH chili pwdr, smoked paprika, ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Directions: Whisk eggs, then add all ingredients together. (Using hands is best). Roll into balls and place on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 450 degrees. Place in bottom of slow cooker.
1/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot Original Sauce, (I used less so the kids would actually eat it)
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon honey or agave
1/4 cup apricot preserves (I used the mango peach orange lower sugar one from Costco)
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
Directions: Whisk all ingredients together then pour over meatballs in slow cooker. Cook on low for 2 hours. (Add more hot sauce if needed). We served this over jasmine rice, with a side salad. Super yummy and much healthier than standard meatballs!
