This is my all time favorite turkey meatball recipe. It's from a page I ripped out of Cooking Light (September 2008). It's super easy, healthy, and tasty.
1 lb ground turkey breast
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs (get whole wheat if you can!)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
I also added some italian seasonings (that's literally what it's labeled), oregano, and onion powder. I'm more of a baker than a "cooker" so I don't get real creative but I'm sure there's more you could do if you wanted.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and roll out mixture into about 18 meatballs. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and brown meatballs on all sides at a medium-high heat. Transfer meatballs to broiler pan (I use a cookie sheet and it's just fine) coated with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
You can freeze whatever you don't eat and they are still good after frozen. Just make sure to let them cool all the way before freezing. This makes cooking in advance super easy. The meatballs we are eating tonight I'm going to let sit in sauce for the next couple of hours to soak up the goodness. If you are feeling fancy make your own sauce but you're going to have to ask your mom or your neighbor for that recipe.
This with a serving of whole grain pasta is going to make some perfect fuel for round 2 of speed work tomorrow. Perhaps I'll post a final picture after dinner. OR you could just make them yourself. Enjoy.
