Impressive Balls

Sorry...I couldn't help myself with the title. :)

Since this is my third post of the day and we're in the middle of watching Avatar, I'll keep this short and sweet.

What's for Dinner? 6/15/2010

-Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs
-Steamed Brocc

When I was gone on my girl's trip Alex informed me that he tried his hand at making turkey meatballs for dinner one night and that they turned out really well. He was anxious to make them for me so that he could show me just how good they are.

And he was absolutely right! These turkey meatballs really ARE delicious and also surprisingly easy to make. He had the meat mixed and in the oven in no time flat and then it's just a waiting game until they're cooked.

-1 pound 93% lean Ground Turkey
-1 egg
The rest of these measurements are approximate because he didn't really measure when he was making this. Just use what seems right to you.
-1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
-1 Tbsp garlic salt
-1 Tbsp lemon pepper
-1 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and then spray the foil with cooking spray {this well help immensely with cleanup}.

Mix all ingredients together by hand in a bowl just until ingredients are incorporated. Do not overwork the meat. Form into balls that are a little smaller than the size of a golf ball {about 1-1.5 inch diameter} and place on the baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes and then turn the broiler on and leave them in the oven for another 2 minutes {this gives them a crispy top}.

Okay so I guess this wasn't really all that short and sweet after all. :)
