game day meatballs!


While on the subject of healthy Super Bowl snacks, I remembered a BBQ meatball recipe posted by my friend and fellow bikini competitor Trish @spoonsandbells on Instagram-check her out for delicious, healthy recipes, she is awesome!  =)

So this is what I’ll be making for the Super Bowl tomorrow. I just made a batch and they smell amazing! I tweaked her original recipe just a bit. Here’s the how-to:


1 pound lean ground turkey

1 cup oats

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/2 TBSP minced garlic

1 egg

salt and pepper

Saute onion and garlic. Blend oats into a flour. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, then roll into balls and bake at 350 for 25 min. I like to use parchment paper.


2 cups BBQ sauce- I use Stubbs (most grocery stores including Walmart. It is all natural, has very little sugar and still tastes great)

1 1/2 cups no-sugar-added applesauce

optional: 1 TBSP chili garlic sauce (that red Asian sauce to add a little kick- we like things spicy!)


Toss your sauce in a crockpot, add the meatballs, and simmer on low for 3-4 hours. Sooooo good!
