Get The Party Started With Creole Turkey Meatballs
If you're having a Mardi Gras party, these Creole Turkey Meatballs are a must have! Even if you don't have a Mardi Gras party you can still make them and your party goers will love them.
I usually make these the day before my event. That way I still have time to prepare other dishes, decorate and make plenty of store runs. To serve, just heat them up in a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. Or you can reheat them on the stovetop. Either way, just be sure to keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
1 & 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper/ground red pepper
2 tablespoons tomato sauce (from can below)
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-15oz can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons currant jelly
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne/ground red pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In large bowl, combine ground turkey and all of remaining ingredients; mix well.
Using tablespoon, shape ground turkey into meatballs. You should end up with about 45 meatballs.
Place in greased baking pan, bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until completely cooked.
While meatballs are cooking, heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat until hot.
With a wire whisk or fork, stir in flour and cook until flour turns a deep brown color.
Stir in remaining tomato sauce and remaining sauce ingredients.
Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly, let mixture cook about a minute.
Add cooked meatballs to sauce, stir gently coating all meatballs.
Serve with cocktail picks/toothpicks.
