Turkey Meatballs with Sweet and Sour Sauce




1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 c seasoned breadcrumbs

1 tbsp dried onion flakes

1 tbsp green bell pepper, chopped

2 tbsp Hoisin sauce

Non-stick vegetable cooking spray As Needed

2 tbsp cornstarch

1/2 c brown sugar, lightly packed

1 20-oz can pineapple chunks, drained and juice reserved

1/3 c water

1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce

3 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 Large red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch cubes



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In medium bowl, combine turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, onion flakes, green pepper and Hoisin sauce. Mix well; cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until mixture is well chilled.

Shape 30 meatballs (about 1 tablespoon turkey mixture for each meatball).

Spray a 10x15x1-inch baking dish with the nonstick cooking spray. Arrange meatballs in an even single layer on pan; bake 15-20 minutes or until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center.

Meanwhile, in a 2-quart microwave safe dish, combine cornstarch and brown sugar. Stir in the reserved pineapple juice, water, vinegar and soy sauce. Microwave at High Power (100% power) for 2 minutes. Stir in red pepper pieces and microwave at High Power (100% power) for an additional 3 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time.

Fold in cooked meatballs and pineapple chunks. Microwave at High Power (100% power) for 2-3 minutes or until all ingredients are heated throughout.

To serve, transfer meatball mixture to a chafing dish and serve with mini-forks or decorative toothpicks. Serving size is 2 meatballs.
