Spicy Turkey Meatballs



Introduction

This recipe was adapted from Spark user IAMYIKES recipe "Spicy Low Fat Turkey Meatballs". I added liquid smoke and worcestershire sauce and sauted the meatballs in a little olive oil before baking them in the oven. These changes only added a few calories but a lot of flavor! Sauteing the meatballs in the pan makes them more like ground beef meatballs from a restaurant than turkey meatballs from your kitchen.

Ingredients

    20 oz Ground Turkey, 97% Lean
    cup Italian Bread Crumbs
    1 tbsp Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
    1 Egg
    1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
    1 tsp Liquid Smoke
    1 tsp Garlic, minced
    1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
    tsp Garlic Salt
    tsp Black Pepper
    1 tsp Oregano
    1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
    1 tbsp Olive Oil


Directions

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a medium baking sheet with non-fat cooking oil.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Scoop out tablespoon sized meatballs and place them in the pan for about a minute on each side. Once the tops and bottoms of the meatballs are cooked move them to the baking sheet and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.

Optional: Once cooked place meatballs in a saucepan with about 2 cups of marinara or spaghetti sauce. Let the meatballs simmer for 5 minutes. (Sauce is not included in the nutritional information.)

1 Serving = 6 Meatballs
