Barbecue Cola Meatballs adapted from Debbie Does Dinner
Adapted from Between the Lines
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
1 1/4 cups bread crumbs (I used panko)
1 egg
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 (1 oz) package dry ranch style dressing mix
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 barbecue sauce
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup cola
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green or red pepper, chopped
1 tsp. seasoning salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

Directions:  In a large bowl, mix together the meatball ingredients until well blended. Shape into meatball and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 turning them over half way. Mix up the sauce ingredients in crockpot. Remove meatballs from baking sheet and place in sauce in crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, then remove lid and cook for an additional 15 minutes before serving. Mine made 40 meatballs.

Total calories = 1922 calories 40 meatballs = 48 calories per meatball with sauce

-I used pre-made, packaged meatballs found in the frozen section.
-I used the entire can of cola and added extra dashes of bbq and apple cider vinegar.

Here's what you'll need:

Chop up the onion.  Place it with the wet ingredients in a bowl and mix.

Place the meatballs in a crockpot and pour the mixture over.
Our Thoughts:
I did not get an "after" photo because we were already at the New Year's Eve party and I didn't think about it.
These meatballs were super easy and really delicious.  The sweet soda mixed with the tanginess of the bbq and ketchup worked great.
Hope you enjoy!

Sounds like a good one for a Superbowl party too.
