1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup low carb bread crumbs
2 tbs olive oil
1 jar pasta sauce
Spices to taste (seasoned salt, garlic, basil, onion, ground peppers)
2-3 mozzarella sticks (cut in 1/2 in pieces)
Mix turkey, bread crumbs, egg & spices in a large bowl. Form each meatball w/ a single piece of mozzarella as it’s center. In a covered pan, brown meatballs in olive oil. Drain oil, add meatballs to meat sauce & cook til done.
Makes about 18 to 20 medium sized meatballs.
Note: Almond flour can be used to replace breadcrumbs. This also lowers the carb content.
Note: When I double the recipe, I still only use one egg. Makes for a nice firm meatball to me.
