Simple Turkey Meatballs

IMG_5350[1]Now that it’s summer and I have a lot of free time on my hands, I’ve been cooking as much as possible and testing out recipes. A few nights ago I made these super simple turkey meatballs for dinner and it was a success!

Here’s what you will need to make these:

  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1/2 cup of almond flour (I used @bobsredmill)
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • and for the spices, I just eyeballed them (you can use whatever kind of want, but I used salt, black pepper, and garlic powder).

The great thing about these meatballs is that you can honestly use whatever you have on hand (leftovers included) and they will probably still turn out great! (I used leftover bell peppers and onion in my meatballs).

Now here’s how you make them:

First, start off by chopping up your veggies (and remember, you can use whatever veggies you want: bell peppers, onions, carrots, celery, etc.) I chose these veggies because I had to use them up and the celery adds a nice crunch to the meatballs.

Then, you take a bit olive oil and 2 cloves of garlic and lightly sauté.

Continue to mix until well combined.

Then form your meatballs into about 2 inch balls and cook it on the stove for a bit just to brown the outsides of the meatballs.

Grease your pan (I forgot to do that so that’s why you see stuff around the meatballs), and place it into the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes.

Let them cool on the rack for a few minutes and enjoy!
