Recipe: Light Turkey Meatballs

I was trying to think of something different to do with our ground turkey instead of making turkey burgers...again. Apparently, ground meat is limited to meatloaf, lasagna and burgers. Meatballs weren't really an option at first because...I hate meatballs. 200 years ago when Subway first opened, I had my first sub and it was a meatball sub. Worst.sub.ever. It was not good at all to me. So, I've hated them ever since. But, I thought it was time to branch out and give them another chance and thought I would share the recipe/concoction with you guys! I thought they turned out pretty good and so did DH!

~1 lb LEAN ground turkey
-1/4 cup chopped onion (I used 1/2 medium Vidalia Onion)
-1 tsp Basil, dried
-1 tsp Oregano, dried
-1 Tbsp garlic, minced (what, we like garlic)
-1/2 cup breadcrumbs
-1 egg, beaten
-Salt & Pepper

-Mix all ingredients together in a bowl
-Spray pan with Pam or use Olive Oil
-Shape meat mixture into balls (about 1" to 1-1/4")
-Place in pan and brown on each side until done (around 5-7 minutes each side)


I served these with whole wheat linguine and diced tomatoes. I also broke out my bread-maker and made some awesome Italian bread to go with it! I will post the recipe for the Italian bread as well!

Let me know what you think!
