Spicy Barbecue Meatballs

Makes 60 Appetizers


1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey breast or 96% lean ground beef
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
2 egg whites
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed fresh garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 can (8 oz) unsalted tomato sauce
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons spicy mustard
1 1/4 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco pepper sauce

Combine the meatball ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, and mix thoroughly.
 Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Shape the meatball mixture
into 60 (1") balls, and place meatballs on the baking sheet.  Bake the meatballs
at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked.  Transfer
the meatballs to a chafing dish or Crock-Pot heated casserole to keep warm.
 Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan, and simmer over medium-low
heat just until hot.  Pour the sauce over the meatballs, toss gently to mix, and serve.
