Happy almost weekend to everyone out there! I work up this morning and my body was telling me to catch a few extra minute of sleep..so I did! After work today I only managed to fit in P90X cardio, which really is fine by me because tomorrow I am going to do Insanity in the morning and go to the gym after work since I am getting out early. Hooray for a short Friday work day 😀
When thinking of what to make for dinner tonight, I remembered watching a show of Good Eats a while back. My recipe is a modification of his recipe. I just used ground turkey breast and omitted the cheese. Enjoy!
1 pound ground turkey (I used ground turkey breast)
¼ cup frozen spinach, dethawed and drained well
¼ cup dried breadcrumbs
½ cup grated onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoon dried parsley
1 ½ teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oil
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, spinach, egg, basil, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and 1 teaspoon oil and 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs. Using your hands, mix all ingredients until well incorporated.
Place the remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs into a small bowl. Using a scale, weigh meatballs into 1.5-ounce portions and place on a sheet pan. Using your hands, shape the meatballs into rounds, roll in the bread crumbs and place the meatballs in individual, miniature muffin tin cups.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve meatballs with either homemade (which I didn’t have time to do) or store-bought (like I did) sauce and pasta.
I hope you all try these, they really are so simple and seriously taste great!
