Low-Fat Turkey Meatballs recipe

The addition of molasses in this recipe adds a little bit of sweetness and a lot of flavor, without the fat. Makes about 14 meatballs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg or 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together.

  3. Scoop each ball with a 1/4 cup measuring cup and loosely form into balls. Do not pack tightly or they will be tough.

  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake until browned and cooked through about 15 to 20 minutes.
