  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 6 slices raw turkey bacon
  • 1/2 cup gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup apricot jam

  1. Slice up the turkey bacon into small pieces.

  2. In a large bowl, add turkey bacon, ground turkey, bread crumbs, garlic and other spices. Mix well.

  3. Spray cooking oil in the internal pot in the pressure cooker. Add jam and barbecue sauce.

  4. Use your hands to roll small meatballs with the turkey meat mixture.

  5. Add the meatballs to the pressure cooker.

  6. Follow the instructions for operating your pressure cooker. I used on by Corsori, so I chose meat as my cooking option.

  7. Cook for 30 minutes.

  8. Allow pressure to ease before opening your pressure cooker. If in doubt, refer to the instruction guide that came with your pressure cooker.

  9. Enjoy the meatballs!
