2013-05-24_15-51-24_101I was in search of a tasty and healthy meatball recipe today but nothing stood out from the various online searches. I decided to make up a new recipe and it’s delicious! So excited.

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

2013-05-24_15-03-47_867Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

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 egg

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.
