1 1/2 pounds
lean ground turkey
1 1/4 cups
dry bread crumbs
1 (1 ounce) package
ranch dressing mix
green bell pepper, minced
1 (12 fl oz) can
diced tomatoes in juice
ground black pepper
Wow! This is good! I followed the recipe except I left out the bell pepper since I didn't have any, and I used dried minced onions (too lazy today to chop onions today). My package of ground turkey was 1.25lbs and I made 15 meatballs. When I added the sauce, I spooned some on each meatball, and I flipped them over when baking was done before letting them rest. I also resisted the urge to just put in the whole can of diced tomatoes and measured out 1 cup as written. Yum!! You can't taste the Dr. Pepper and I bet you'd get the same result with Coke, too. I served them over rice and fresh broccoli. Everyone loved them!!
I used fresh bread crumbs in the meatballs and homemade ranch dressing mix. I did not add the extra salt in the sauce. I'm sure this could be a good recipe with some doctoring--as is, we didn't care for it.
Yum Yum Yum!!! This recipe was great, loved the flavor it gave. The only thing I did diffrent was brown mine in a pan and place in a crock pot, all the ingredients stayed the same, and this was delicious. Will def do again, thank you for the recipe! :)
This was really good. Served it with white rice and everyone gobbled it up. My neighbor called for the recipe because her kids told her how much they liked it! Added this to our regular menu.
I have to be honest, I cannot taste the Dr.Pepper.That being said, the meatballs Rocked! I liked the sauce too. My son said this dish tasted like my meatloaf without the vegies. I even add extra soda to sauce,to try and "DR" up the flavor, didn't help. I like making it, easy and I made 3 lbs of meatballs,used 1/2 for tonight and will make meatloaf out of the rest some other day. Thank You Lyndsie these were fun!
The meatballs in this recipe were good, but the sauce was not. We did not like the flavor. The combination of the Dr. Pepper and tomato created a cinnamon taste that was unappealing.
I made the recipe exactly as written and loved, loved, loved the sauce. But...the meatballs were way too mushy for our tastes. I will certainly make the sauce again but will use my regular turkey meatball recipe instead. Note...there must have been some kind of Dr. Pepper shortage in our area. 2 major supermarkets were out and the mini mart I finally went to had only one 20 oz bottle.
Surprisingly my kids found this too sweet.
