BBQ Turkey Meatballs

I got this recipe from a close friend and adapted it to make it a bit healthier by using turkey instead of ground beef. I also used store bought BBQ sauce instead of making it from scratch. (It is more appetizing than the picture, I promise.)

3 lbs. ground turkey
1 (13 oz) can evaporated milk
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt
BBQ Sauce (I prefer Sweet Baby Ray's Original)

Mix all ingredients together. Grease a 9x13 and 8x8 inch pans (or something of similar sizes). Use a large cookie scoop (golf ball sized) to scoop mixture and place in baking dishes. At this point either cover with saran wrap and place in refrigerator or cover cover with BBQ sauce. Bake 1 hour at 350.

I made these Saturday evening and kept in refrigerator over night. Then on Sunday covered the turkey balls in BBQ sauce and baked. Worked great and tasted amazing.
