Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs.

These came out delicious! I used my basic Italian meatball recipe and put a different spin on it with a sweet fruity glaze. Yum.

1 lb ground turkey
1/3 cup chopped red onion
2 minced garlic cloves
seasoned bread crumbs, about 1 cup
1 egg
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
fresh basil, parsley and oregano
1/2 jar peach preserves
1/2 jar duck sauce
1/4 cup grand marnier

Saute garlic and onion in olive oil until glassy.

Combine with turkey, egg, herbs, cheese and bread crumbs until mixture can be shaped into small balls.

Line meatballs in baking dish and bake at 375 for 45 minutes.

In a saucepan, combine preserves, duck sauce and grand marnier. Simmer for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, put baked meatballs in a saute pan to reheat. Pour fruit glaze over meatballs and heat.
