Protein Powered Turkey Meatballs

Submitted by: MENAMIA

Introduction

These meatballs are a great way to get you're complex carbs and protein at the same time, all in one neat little meatball. The best thing is you can eat them any time of day. Just cook, and serve. You can also freeze them for later. They are get on the go. I love them for breakfast instead of sausage.

Ingredients

    1 lbs Turkey, ground turkey, 93% lean
    1 cups quick oats
    3 Egg whites
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 tbsp fine chopped onion
    4 tbsp Honey barbecue sauce or original
    1/2 tbsp Parsley, dried
    Cooking Spray

Directions

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. make mixture into bite size balls (about the size of a golf ball), I like to flatten them a little into patties (not completely flat). Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until cooked through. You can also cook them stovetop. Spray skillet and cook until browned, they brown quickly, use a low flame and keep an eye on them. If needed drain any excess greese with paper towels. Use different types of mustards as a dipping sauce. Can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. Goes great with Brown rice and steamed veggies. Makes about 21 meatballs. 3 meatballs per serving.

  • It tasted good, but the meat fell apart in the pan (used stovetop method.) I think I may have chosen too lean of a turkey. - 9/1/10

  • This was very good. We tried them with mustard and cranberry sauce. Then we got out the honey mustard-that is the ticket. We liked that taste together the best. It will be nice to have a fast lunch already tomorrow also. - 3/20/09

  • These were great! My husband has to do gluten free so we just replaced the oats with GF bread crumbs--they turned out great! - 1/30/09
