Ingredients

Meat

2 lbs Ground turkey or chicken, lean

Produce

4 cloves Garlic
2 tbsp Italian parsley
2 tsp Oregano, dried
1 Lb of Steamed Spinach (cooled & drained)
1 Carrot, Diced
2 Celery Sticks, Diced
1 Medium onion, diced

Refrigerated

2 Eggs

Baking & Spices

1.5 tsp Black pepper
1 tbsp Kosher or sea salt
1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes
1 tsp cayenne pepper

Dairy

1 cup Low Skim Mozarella Cheese, Shredded

Preheat oven to 375 F. Cover a non stick baking pan with foil & lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients into bowl EXCEPT cheese. Once all the ingredients are incorporated together, form into meatballs about the size of a golf ball. Form an empty pocket in the middle, and stuff with a pinch of low fat cheese evenly distributing turkey mix so cheese is hidden in the middle.

Place onto middle rack of the oven, set timer for 10-15 minutes- flipping them over when they are about half way through. The juices should run clear and meatballs should be slightly browned on the outside. Cool on a rack and pack them up.
Can be served with roasted veggies & sweet potato mash. Topped on some pasta. Or simply enjoyed on their own as a grab and go snack!
Serving Size is 4-6 meatballs. 9g Fat, 17g Carbs, 26g Protein.
