Greek Turkey Meatballs
Health Highlights


567 gm Ground turkey, lean
1 cup grated Zucchini (liquid squeezed out)
2 slice Whole wheat bread
1/4 cup Bread crumbs, seasoned
1 large Egg
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1/4 medium Red onion (grated)
2 tbsp Oregano, fresh (chopped)
1/4 cup Parsley, fresh (chopped)
2 tbsp Mint, fresh (chopped)
1 pinch Salt and pepper
1 tsp Olive oil cooking spray


Wet bread with water, squeezing excess out. Tear into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Combine with turkey, egg, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, mint, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, form each meatball 1/4 cup in size. For best results, refrigerate before cooking to help hold their shape.

In a pan: spray olive oil in a large nonstick frying pan and cook over very low heat (or you can make 350F 20-25 minutes)

On the grill: clean grill well before cooking and spray grate with oil. Cook on low until cooked through.

Makes about 17 meatballs.
