"A handy, flavorful way to serve turkey at your festive tailgates. Or serve these as appetizers during the holidays and college bowl game homegates."
1 cup barbecue sauce
½ cup grape jelly
4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
½ cup chicken stock
2 red apples
½ pound uncooked bacon, finely chopped
2 pounds ground turkey
1 ½ teaspoons salt
Grease the grill grate and preheat the grill on low heat.
In a saucepan, whisk together barbecue sauce, jelly, vinegar and chicken stock. Set the saucepan on the grill to slowly warm up.
Shred the unpeeled red apples onto heavy-duty paper towels and squeeze out the excess juice. Dump the apples into a bowl. Add the uncooked bacon, ground turkey and salt. Mix with your hands until evenly combined.
Use a 2-inch cookie scoop to form meatballs and thread onto side-by-side thick skewers.
Grill 35–45 minutes until cooked through, turning and drizzling with the warmed sauce occasionally. Serve the remaining sauce with the meatballs.
