Turkey Meatballs

ITS THE WEEKEND!! and i finally have a saturday off work! I was meant to add this recipe during the week but unfortunately i didn't get the chance so i am really sorry! but fear not...it is here!

These were really nice and so simple to make. It crazy everyone thinks eating healthy and clean is difficult but actually it takes just as much time as putting chicken nuggets and chips int he oven...its all about perspective and what you think is worth your time!

anyway...

So if you follow my recipe exactly each MAHOOSIVE ball is around 60 kcal which is so good!

You will need

  • 500g of minced turkey breast (the leaner the better)
  • 1/3 cup of oats 
  • Half a pepper (colour of your choice)
  • Half a red onion diced quite small
  • 1 1/2 egg white
  • tsp of dried basil - I'm not a huge fan of basil so up this to your taste
  • 1 garlic clove minced or chopped
  • 1 tbsp of cajun spice - or paprika if you would prefer
  • a little salt and pepper

1) preheat your oven to 180'C and grab a muffin tin and spray each muffin whole with a single spray of 1 kcal spray (or fry light)

2) put all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix with your hands....i had great fun getting my hands dirty

3) once the ingredients are mixed divide into 12 equalish servings and put in the muffin tin

4) put them in the oven for around 15 minutes, then flip them over and return to the oven for a further 10-15 minutes...I think i over done mine a little but i like the outside to be brown :)

It really is that simple. and they are so delicious :) 

Serving suggestion

For lunch i had 3 meatball and big table spoon of coleslaw (recipe to come) and lots of cucumber....i love cucumber :)

Let me know how yours come out and any variations you make :)

Lots of hard work and dedication
