  3. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together sour cream, broth, Garlic Garlic™ Seasoning, remaining 5 tablespoons Bacon Pepper Jam, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve sauce over meatballs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty!! Ran out of ideas for ground turkey, so I looked through Tastefully Simple recipes as they always have great ideas - this is a keeper! The whole family loved them - even though I forgot to put the eggs in due to trying to do too many things at once, lol. I know they will be even better next time, when I remember all of the ingredients!
