Turkey & Cheese Meatballs
Yield: about 50 meatballs
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey (or other meat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup quick oats (or breadcrumbs)
  • ¾ cup grated parmesean cheese
  • 2 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, broken into small bits.
  • 2 large carrots, finely grated*
  • 2 broccoli stalks, finely grated**
  • smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper and dash of chili powder (I just eyeballed these, sprinkled a little bit of each. I under-salted thinking I could always add more after but it was plenty.)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Drizzle a cookie sheet lightly with olive oil. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Use a small scoop or a spoon to portion 1-inch meatballs, rolling them with your hands and placing in rows on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Let cool slightly and then serve as is, or freeze!
You could also shred the carrots on your food processor
* I only used the stalks of the broccoli, but you could definitely use a whole head.
