Introduction

Relatively healthy meatballs to go in your favourite low-cal pasta sauce. The flax seed gives them some Omega-3s and fibre, but you could substitute bread crumbs if you prefer.

Ingredients

    1 lb ground extra lean turkey
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    2 tsp black pepper
    3 Tbsp ground flax seed
    1 Tbsp grated light parmesan cheese
    1 medium egg, beaten

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, combine turkey with all ingredients except egg, blending well. Add egg and work through mixture.

Roll meat into balls of roughly a tablespoon and place on a lightly-greased baking sheet. You should be able to make 32 meatballs. Unlike cookies, these won't spread, so you don't need to leave much room between.

Bake in oven for about 25 minutes, turning once. Makes 8 servings of 4 meatballs each.

These were originally created to go with "Thrae's Veggie Spaghetti Sauce", but you could add them in during the last 10 minutes of cooking any pasta sauce.

They can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for a day or two, or frozen. If you're using them frozen, remember that they'll take longer to rewarm in the sauce.
