Crock Pot Italian Turkey Meatballs

I don't typically use ground turkey, but these looked really good AND they are made in the crock pot! Super easy and yummy. I made the meatballs the night before so all I had to do the next morning was put them into the crock pot with the sauce.

ground turkey breast 93% lean, 1.2 lbs
1/4 c seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 c parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 c parsley, finely chopped
1 egg
1 clove of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

large can crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
1 can diced tomatoes in roasted garlic
1 tsp olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
fresh chopped basil or parsley

In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, egg, garlic, salt and pepper. With clean hands, mix all ingredients together and form meatballs, about the size of golf balls. Pour crushed and diced tomatoes into the crock pot, along with olive oil, garlic, bay leaf, and salt and pepper. Stir together, then drop in meatballs. Cook on Low 5-6 hours. Adjust salt/pepper to taste. I served these on spaghetti.
