Ingredients

MEATBALLS

1 c
panko bread crumbs
1/4 c
parmesan cheese
1
egg, slightly beaten
1
apples, granny smith or fuji, diced small
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1 Tbsp
parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper
1 lb
ground turkey
1/2 c
onion, sauteed

SAUCE

1 c
apple cider vinegar
1/2 c
maple syrup
2 Tbsp
balsamic vinegar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Dice onion and apple. Sauté onion in a small amount of oil till semitransparent.
2
In a large bowl, mix the onions and apple dice with the remaining meatball ingredients. Form into meatballs using a ice cream scoop with swing lever (makes the perfect size).
3
Place meatballs about 1 inch apart on large oiled baking pan or cookie sheet. Cook in 350 oven for 20-30 min, checking often not to overcook as these will go into the skillet with the sauce for about 5-8 more minutes of cooking.
4
Combine sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Look Out! the vinegar is pungent!
5
Place meatballs into large skillet, add sauce and cook over low heat for 5-8 min. Stir only enough to coat the meatballs or they will want to fall apart. Can just skip this step and use as a dipping sauce... but they are so good like this!
