Greek Turkey Meatballs

This is the second attempt at this Greek turkey meatballs recipe. They really are quite delicious. My friend W tried one and she said there were delicious as well. I have been using a 1/2 tablespoon to create the meatballs for all my turkey meatballs lately. I like have lots of little meatballs rather than a few larger ones. I served this along with a salad (see next post) and all in all it was a wonderful meal to top off a day of beautiful weather. Spring is in the air and soon we'll be grilling up a storm. I can't wait for the seasonal produce and I'm thinking about joining a CSA.

Greek Turkey Meatballs (adapted from The Perfect Pantry)

6-8 oz ground turkey

1/4 cup seasoned dry breadcrumbs

~4 tbsp fat free plain Greek yogurt

1 large egg

~1 tsp dried oregano

~1 tsp lemon zest

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp olive oil

1 tbsp dried parsley

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix until well combined, with the breadcrumbs and yogurt evenly distributed throughout.
  2. Wet your hands with water, and form the turkey mixture into meatballs.
  3. In a pan coated with cooking spray, saute the meatballs until cooked through, turning to ensure browning on all sides.
