Quick and Easy Sweet & Sour Mini Turkey Meatballs #kraftrecipemakers

Disclosure

Is it me or did football season come around quicker this year?  Of course, that means that every Sunday we need to feed the whole crew with quick and easy finger foods.  When I'm so busy over the week, the last thing I want to do is spend a ton of time planning and cooking all weekend.

When I found out about Kraft Recipe Makers (#kraftrecipemakers), I was ecstatic because I knew that I could cook up a crowd pleaser for very little effort (and money).  These sweet and sour turkey meatballs are moist and flavorful, and I can whip them up no time flat.  Perfect!


Not only are the Kraft Recipe Maker kits super easy to use, they come in a variety of flavors that will make it super easy to switch up our party dishes.  Also, each kit has three different recipes with each box.  Perfect if you're not sure what to cook!

Here's my spin on one of their recipes, Sweet & Sour Turkey Meatballs!

Directions

I went back to recut these because they were too thick for our mini meatballs!


2. Finely chop red and green bell peppers.

I served these to friends and family, and received nods of approval all around!  My guy loved the punch of flavor and my mom was surprised about how moist they stayed.  The best part is that it was so super quick and easy with Kraft Recipe Makers (connect with them here on Facebook).  I'm definitely going to keep these on hand when I'm not sure what to cook for my crowd!

Bon appetit!
