  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.

I used fresh bread crumbs in the meatballs and homemade ranch dressing mix. I did not add the extra salt in the sauce. I'm sure this could be a good recipe with some doctoring--as is, we didn't care for it.


Wow! This is good! I followed the recipe except I left out the bell pepper since I didn't have any, and I used dried minced onions (too lazy today to chop onions today). My package of ground turkey was 1.25lbs and I made 15 meatballs. When I added the sauce, I spooned some on each meatball, and I flipped them over when baking was done before letting them rest. I also resisted the urge to just put in the whole can of diced tomatoes and measured out 1 cup as written. Yum!! You can't taste the Dr. Pepper and I bet you'd get the same result with Coke, too. I served them over rice and fresh broccoli. Everyone loved them!!


Yum Yum Yum!!! This recipe was great, loved the flavor it gave. The only thing I did diffrent was brown mine in a pan and place in a crock pot, all the ingredients stayed the same, and this was delicious. Will def do again, thank you for the recipe! :)
