Description

These meatballs are amazing and totally guilt-free. A perfect winter meal that satisfies your need for warm, comforting food while falling easily within the bounds of a sensible diet.

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ pound Ground Turkey Breast
  • 2-½ slices Whole Wheat Bread
  • ¼ cups Milk
  • 5 whole Scallions, Finely Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian Flat-leaf Parsley, Finely Chopped
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1-½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper

Preparation

Place bread in a food processor and process until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl, add the milk and stir to distribute. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Chop the scallions, garlic and parsley. In a large bowl, add the turkey, breadcrumb mixture, scallions, garlic, parsley, egg, salt and pepper. Gently fold everything until thoroughly combined, or use your hands.

To cook:
Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and turn until browned on all sides. Cover with pasta sauce and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes to finish cooking the meatballs and allow the flavors to develop. You may need to add water to keep the sauce the desired consistency.

To freeze:
Place the meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for an hour or so, until the meatballs are firm and can be transferred to a Ziploc bag or airtight container.
