Turkey Meatballs with Cheddar Cheese

Soul food? Yes.

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup whole bran cereal, crushed, or corn flake crumbs
2 slices whole wheat bread
2 teaspoons Bragg’s
2 large carrots, finely shredded
2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
2 teaspoons dill weed

6 cloves garlic
2 28 oz. cans tomato puree
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp thyme

1 – 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated

In a mixing bowl combine eggs, cereal, shredded bread, and Bragg’s. Add turkey and shredded carrot. Mix well and shape into medium-sized meatballs; brown in large skillet and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. For sauce: dice and saute garlic. Combine sauce ingredients and heat until almost boiling. Transfer meatballs and sauce to pot; simmer for at least 20 minutes (alternately, throw in the crockpot for 2 hours on high). Transfer to casserole dish; top with cheddar cheese and broil until cheese is melted.

Serves 6 – 8.
