I love these balls on their own or dipped in a tomato sauce, or guys you can eat them with your pasta (healthy spaghetti and meatballs). They are quick and easy to make, tasty, super healthy and high in protein. Keep them in a sealed container for later too, because they make the perfect grab ‘n go snack!
Ingredients for Turkey Meatballs:
1lb ground Turkey
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
¼ cup bread crumbs
3 garlic cloves minced
3 tbsp chopped rosemary
4 egg whites
Optional: chopped celery
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, roll into balls with your hands and place on baking sheet in the oven on broil 525F. Rotate the balls every few minutes until they are golden brown all the way around 10-15 minutes.
Turkey benefits:Turkey breast nutrition facts reveal that one serving has 27 grams of protein, it falls into a group of high-protein foods including tuna and egg whites that can help keep post-meal insulin levels within a desirable range (also considered to be a fat burning food).It contains large amounts of B6, significant amounts of B12 and a large variety of minerals that include iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and selenium. Other vitamins like calcium, manganese, zinc and copper are found in small, but helpful quantities.
