Meatballs Are A Great Appetizer Staple

I can’t tell you how many get-togethers I’ve been to and one of the main dishes is always a crockpot full of saucy, delicious meatballs.

The easiest way to prepare this popular dish is usually with a bag of frozen meatballs bought at the store, but I personally believe that homemade meatballs are an exceptional delicacy.

Everyone raves over them because they are just so good!!

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup finely ground pork rinds (see notes)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon THM Super Sweet or Pyure Organic Stevia
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In large bowl, mix all ingredients together.
  3. Shape into balls (a little more than 2 Tablespoons is what I did for each ball)
  4. Place on parchment lined baking sheet or silicone baking mat like this one .
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.


If you don't have pork rinds, you can easily use ground oats or grated Parmesan cheese in the same amounts.
