2 pounds ground turkey breast
2 teaspoons salt-free garlic and herb seasoning or poultry seasoning
1 egg white
Salt and ground black pepper
2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons dried thyme
Mashed Red Potatoes, recipe follows
Steamed Broccoli, recipe follows

In a large bowl, combine turkey, garlic and herb seasoning, egg white and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Mix well and shape mixture into about 32 meatballs. Place meatballs in bottom of slow cooker.

In a medium bowl, whisk together tomato sauce, broth, chili sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and thyme. Pour mixture over meatballs.

Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Serve with Mashed Red Potatoes and Steamed Broccoli.

Mashed Red Potatoes:
8 medium red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (skin on)
6 whole cloves garlic
1 cup light sour cream
4 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Salt and ground black pepper

Place potatoes and garlic cloves in a large saucepan and pour over enough water to cover. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Boil 8 minutes until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain and return potatoes and garlic cloves to pan. Mash in sour cream until desired consistency. Fold in chives. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Steamed Broccoli:
2 cups broccoli florets
2 tablespoons water
Salt and pepper
Lemon wedges

In a microwaveable bowl, add broccoli florets and water. Cover and cook in microwave 2 to 3 minutes, or until crisp tender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with lemon, if desired.

I've made that mistake by using the "sweet" asian chile sauce. It was still good! If you eat just the meatballs, with a small amount of sauce, it isn't too much. Good luck! Don't let this time ruin it for you. I actually made them on Monday this week. yum!
