You can thank us later for this...
It’s an insanely awesome (and easy) recipe that’s perfect for your own holiday parties, or to bring with you
to a potluck.
These meatballs are healthy, but no one eating them would ever know!
They’re a little tangy, a little sweet, and packed with a lot of protein and deliciousness.
You can even make them a couple days in advance and then reheat them when it’s time to eat.
If you’re feeding a crowd, double up on the ingredients and let them simmer.
Skinny Italian Turkey Meatballs
(serves 4-6 people)
20 oz 1.3 lb ground turkey breast 99% lean
1/4 cup whole wheat seasoned breadcrumbs, or gluten-free crumbs
1/4 cup Reggiano Parmigiano cheese, grated
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1 large clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp kosher salt + fresh pepper
For the marinara sauce:
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, smashed
2 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes
1/2 small onion, keep whole
1 bay leaf
1 tsp oregano
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
Salt and fresh pepper to taste
In a medium size pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden, being careful not to burn. Add crushed tomatoes, onion, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and bay leaf. Stir and reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer on low 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg, parsley, garlic and cheese. Using wet hands, mix all the ingredients well until everything is combined. Form small meatballs, about the size of a ping ping ball (1/8th cup each).
Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook about 20 minutes. Discard the bay leaf and serve over pasta or on whole wheat Italian bread for a meatball hero.
You can eat them immediately, or store covered in the fridge for two days before serving.
