These meatballs are baked, not fried. Savory and fragrant with herbs and garlic. Quick and easy to make and low in calories. I debated over using a bottled sauce and just decided on a few tomatoes and an red onion with a little more garlic. The more I try ground turkey the more I like it. I guess something is working in this way of living. Since going to the Doctor a few weeks ago I found out that my cholesterol has gone down 25 points and my weight has gone down 25 also since the first of the year. Lets just hope I can keep it up while we go to Germany. This recipe serves 6 at 148 calories for the meatballs. Quick and easy you can have dinner on the table in minutes. I found this recipe in the American Medical Association Healthy Heart Cookbook.
1 pound 99-percent fat-free ground turkey breast or chicken breast
1/2 cup fresh whole-grain bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup plain soy milk
1 egg white
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 400F
In a bowl, combine the turkey, bread crumbs, Parmesan, soy milk, egg white, garlic, olive oil, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. Shape the turkey mixture into 24 meatballs about 1 inch in diameter, using about 2 tablespoons per meatball.
Arrange the meatballs on a nonstick baking sheet so they are not touching and bake, turning once halfway through for even browning, until cooked through, 10-12 minutes.
