Turkey Meata-balls

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Thought I'd post this since it's been a pretty easy and tasty staple for me lately.  They're pretty versatile and can be used a lot of ways, but I tend to just eat two at a time when it's mealtime!  This will yield about 35-40 ping-pong ball sized meata-balls (AKA meatballs):


3 lbs lean ground turkey (93% lean)

1 cup almond flour

3/4 cup uncooked oats

2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp all purpose seasoning (I use Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb)

1 tsp salt or salt substitute

1/2 tsp each pepper, rosemary, sage and thyme

3/4 cup egg whites or whites of 4 eggs



1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Place turkey into a large mixing bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well.

4. Pour the dry ingredients over the turkey and add the egg whites.  Pulverize with your hands until thoroughly combined.

5. Cover two baking sheets in tinfoil (or don't, but it makes clean-up easy) and spray with non-stick spray.  Roll ping-pong sized balls and line them up 4x5'ish.  

6. Bake for 12 minutes, flip, then bake for another 12 minutes.  

7. Enjoy your... MEATA-BALLS

You're welcome - also wanted to mention an addition I've found that's not too bad.  I recently brought the recipe up with my nutritionist and she felt it's a good recipe as long as I'm getting more veggies.  So I had the idea of throwing one of these https://www.veggiesmadeeasy.com/products/southwest-chipotle-nourish-bowl/ in the nutri-ninja with the egg whites and adding the resulting slurry to the meatball mix.  It turned out pretty well!  They do smell a little green at first but it's very minimal and the end flavor is good.  I discarded the cheese packet since it already has parmesan in the recipe.
