Easy Meatballs For Dinner

Sweet & Savory Meatballs.

If you're looking for an easy meal for dinner, then try these yummy meatballs.

These are not your usual meatballs, which are normally served in an all savory sauce, also made with ground beef. Mine is made with Ground Turkey and my Sauce is sweet, yet it has a hint of tartness and what's more, it's creamy too.
What more can a girl ask for...oh wait Chocolate! Lol
(That can be for dessert)

Here is what you will need to make
 Sweet & Savory Meatballs

1 lbs of  Ground Turkey
1 large Onion
1 cup of Breadcrumbs
2 heaped Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
1 cup of Grape Jelly (for those in the UK - Jam)
2 cups of Ketchup
1 can of diced Tomatoes
1/3 cup of Milk
1/4 cup Heavy Cream
2oz of Low Fat Cream Cheese

Heat your oven to 425 Deg

Whizz up your bread to make Breadcrumbs

I already whizzed my onion into small cubes.

Add you breadcrumbs to the ground turkey

Add the Seasonings and Milk

Add Olive Oil into a frying pan & heat

Gather up some of the meatball mixture and form into a ball (1lb of turkey makes 16)
Then place them into the hot oil. You're just going to quickly brown them off.

Once browned, place in an oven proof dish & pop in the oven for a good 20 minutes.
Now while they are cooking you're going to make your sauce.

Add your jelly, ketchup & tomatoes to your pan.

Add some extra Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Give it a quick stir and heat.

Heat until the jelly has melted

Next add the cream cheese and stir until it melts

Next add your heavy cream, now don't worry if the sauce looks like there's streaks of white from the cream cheese, you're going to take an immersion blender & give it a really good whizz.

This is how it will look once youv'e finished Whizzing, nice and creamy...Mmm
Taste test now, make sure its to your liking, if needed add more salt and pepper.

By now the meatballs will be done.

Add the meatballs to your sauce & stir carefully, you don't want to break your yummy meatballs.
Heat through.

Serve with some Jasmine Rice and freshly steamed Green Beans, Brocoli & Carrots.

Mmmm...So Good.
And before you know it, you'll be scooping up some more to enjoy.
