not Swedish, ha ha. I call them sweetish because the carrots and peppers make them sweeter than usual. Great hands-on recipe for kids!

Recipe Ingredients for Sweetish Meatballs/Meatloaf

1 pound lean ground turkey
1/4 cup bbq sauce
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup uncooked pearled barley
1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
4 tbsp minced garlic

Recipe Directions for Sweetish Meatballs/Meatloaf

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

  2. I like to use Sweet Baby Ray's Original

  3. BBQ Sauce. You can use grated carrots for this, or sometimes I will use left over carrots (and whatever other left over veggies) and puree them in my blender, then mix them in. Kids can't pick out what they can't see :-)

  4. Mix all ingredients by hand in a big mixing bowl.

  5. For meatballs: Make into little balls. Each serving is roughly half of a cup of the uncooked meat mixture, I like 4 per serving.

  6. Place the balls onto a cookie sheet and bake until done (approx. 5-12 minutes, depending on the size)

  7. For meatloaf: place into a loaf pan, or you can make a loaf shape and place onto a glass pan with sides. Bake for 45 minutes.
