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)
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.
