Ingredients

    Turkey, Ground turkey, 93% lean, 16 oz (1 lb)
    Food Lion turkey bacon, 12 slices
    Apple - Fresh medium size Peeled and chopped
    Onion (Yellow), 1 med, raw, 1/2 chopped
    Garlic Powder, .5 tsp
    kosher salt, 1 tsp
    Pepper, black, .5 tsp
    Egg, fresh, 1 large
    Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    2 oz Cabot 75% reduced fat cheddar cheese. (optional but included in our calorie count)

Directions

This all goes in your 4 quart slow cooker for 4-6 hours depending if you have it on low or high. High = 4 hrs Low=6 check every 30 minutes after 3 hours though. You may have to turn your meatballs.

Turn crockpot on low (or high) and heat for about 5 minutes. Then, line your crockpot with 6 slices of the turkey bacon.

So, in a large bowl mix ground turkey with all the spices, egg, cheese, chopped apple & onion. Mix through with hands. Shape into 6 large meat balls.

Wrap each meatball with a slice of the last 6 slices of turkey bacon. Add extra black pepper on top if you want. Add into your already heated crockpot. Put your top on and wait. After 3 hours check them and turn the if needed. They will be a lovely brown and crisping on the outside when done. An internal temp of 155 is what you are looking for in your meatballs.

Put over rice if you would like. I just like to serve with a side of green beans.
