  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the turkey, egg, bread crumbs, ranch dressing mix, and 1 tablespoon of the Worcestershire sauce into a mixing bowl along with 3 tablespoons of the minced onion, and 3 tablespoons of the minced bell pepper. Set the remaining onion and bell pepper aside. Form the turkey mixture into 2 inch meatballs, and place into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. While the meatballs are baking, stir the remaining onion and bell pepper in a bowl along with the Dr. Pepper(R), 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, diced tomatoes, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Once the meatballs have cooked for 15 minutes, remove them from the oven and pour the sauce overtop. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and return to the oven.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and continue baking 15 minutes more. Remove from the oven and allow to stand 15 minutes before serving.

This was really good. Served it with white rice and everyone gobbled it up. My neighbor called for the recipe because her kids told her how much they liked it! Added this to our regular menu.

I have to be honest, I cannot taste the Dr.Pepper.That being said, the meatballs Rocked! I liked the sauce too. My son said this dish tasted like my meatloaf without the vegies. I even add extra...

The meatballs in this recipe were good, but the sauce was not. We did not like the flavor. The combination of the Dr. Pepper and tomato created a cinnamon taste that was unappealing.

I made the recipe exactly as written and loved, loved, loved the sauce. But...the meatballs were way too mushy for our tastes. I will certainly make the sauce again but will use my regular turk...

Surprisingly my kids found this too sweet.

These were delicious! The only thing I changed was I didn't add the green pepper, my family doesn't like them. This was delicious over mashed potatoes. This is going down as a family favoriate.
