Cooking these as listed could be problematic using beef and covering with a sauce. The grease would turn the sauce into a more unhealthy and unpleasant liquid than it already is so instead, I adjusted it to be healthier and tastier. I used 2.5lbs of ground turkey, medium sized onion, heavy cream (low carb) and crushed pita chips. For the sauce I used everything as listed except replaced the sugar with Brown Sugar Twin substitute and only used 1/4 cup vinegar. I also seasoned the turkey with seasoning salt, garlic mesquite, paprika and white pepper. Poured the sauce over the meatballs and baked for about 30 minutes. These turned out AWESOME. Slightly tangy, a tiny bit sweet and no grease. I also used a small ice cream scoop for even sized meatballs. With a few adjustments, this recipe gets 5 stars. As it stands it gets 3 as a good base recipe.
