Clean Eating Turkey Meatballs

These are prefect to bring to a party, use in speghetti with whole grain noodles, or cut up and throw in a pita for lunch. These are so good and easy to make.



 


Ingredients:1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey or chicken.
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 egg lightly beaten
1 cup oat bran or wholewheat breadcrumbs
2 tbsp fresh parsely, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh oregano finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, passed through a garlic press
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preparation
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl place egg and breadcrumbs or oat bran. Add spices and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Using an ice cream scoop make meatballs and place on prepared cookie sheet. Place in hot oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

I am going to make these for lunch with a whole grain pita, some low sodium tomato sauce, a tiny sprinkle of low fat mozzarella cheese and some lettuce!!!
