I used ground turkey 85%. The secret to these is that I used a half can of Campbell’s 98% fat free Cream of Mushroom soup which took this lean meat and added moisture I rarely get when I make turkey meatballs. The other special ingredient was a cup of 4c Salt-free Seasoned Breadcrumbs.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
20 oz lean ground turkey,
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 can of Campbell’s 98% fat free Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup 4C Salt Free Seasoned bread crumbs
Roll into one inch meatballs. Keep in mind that after I rolled them in balls and tried to fry them in Pam they fell apart. So I ended up with half a batch of delicious ground stuff (which I ate on lettuce leaves with tomato sauce). For the rest of them-which IS RECOMMENDED, bake them on a non stick cookie sheet at 375 degrees for about 8-10 minutes on each side.
I plugged the ingredients into an app on http://www.myfitnesspal.com (an AWESOME website and phone app) and received the information below. Based on 6 servings, it’s 278 calories per serving. It makes 40 meatballs.
