Shopping List
  • 1 pound(s) 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, oat flour, and/or almond flour (Note 1)
  • 1/4 cup shallot or onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 cloves roasted or raw garlic, chopped (Note 2)
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pepper, to taste
  • cooking oil, for frying

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Step 2: Mix together all ingredients, except the cooking oil, until just combined. Avoid over-mixing. Shape the meat into 20 to 24 small meatballs. Wet your hands lightly with water while shaping to help reduce sticking. The meatballs will feel quite wet.
  3. Step 3: Heat an oven-proof non-stick pan over medium-high heat with a light layer of cooking oil or spray. Once sizzling hot, add the meatballs one by one. Cook in batches as needed to avoid over-crowding the pan. Cook the meatballs until they are golden brown on all sides, about 6 to 7 minutes depending on their size. Place the cooked meatballs on a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Step 4: Once all of the meatballs are browned, place them back in the hot pan. Put the pan in the preheated oven for 7 minutes. Note: If you do not have an oven-proof pan, transfer the meatballs to a lined baking sheet.
  5. Serve: Time to eat! These meatballs are delicious over Spaghetti Squash with Broccolini.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: You can mix and match ingredients as well. These are great with a 50:50 blend of ground oat flour and almond flour.

Note 2: Roasted garlic adds a great mellow flavor to these meatballs. To roast the garlic, take use a sharp knife to slice off the top of a whole head of garlic to expose some of the cloves inside. Place the garlic head on a piece of foil, drizzle it with a little olive oil, and wrap it in the foil. Place the foil packet in a 400°F oven for 30 minutes, until the cloves are lightly browned and fork tender. The roasted garlic can be used in all sorts of dishes throughout the week.
