The Super Bowl is today, and while my boyfriend and I typically watch the game together and don’t engage in the whole party aspect of the event, we HAVE to have some good game time snacks! This year, my contribution is these yummy meatballs (turkey and bacon? How can you go wrong?) with a sweet-with-a-little-heat sauce.
These Bacon Turkey Meatballs with Peach Honey Mustard Sauce are really quick and easy to make, they’re really low on cleanup, and they’re the perfect pop-in-your-mouth snack! Just try not to eat them all before you get them to the table!
About 20 meatballs and 1 cup of sauce
1/2 large peach, peeled (or 4-5 slices of peaches in juice, if you can’t find a fresh peach)
1/2 tsp. coconut palm sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. honey
Pinch of Cayenne pepper
1 lb. ground turkey (85/15 blend)
4 pieces of bacon cut into 1-inch pieces (I used Applegate Uncured Sunday Bacon)
3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. celery salt
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients for sauce in a food processor or a bowl that you can use an immersion blender in. Blend it until smooth and adjust to taste.
2. Place your bacon pieces into a pan over medium heat and cook until almost perfectly crispy. Remove from pan and place on a dish covered in paper towel to soak up the extra grease.
3. While the bacon is cooking, combine the rest of the ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Add your bacon once it is cool enough to touch. Using your hands, massage all ingredients together and then mold into balls about 1-inch in diameter. Place on a baking sheet and place into oven for about 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of your meatballs. Check to make sure that no pink exists in the center of the meatballs to check for doneness.
