Recently on Instagram, I had seen some posts on some amazing looking meatball recipes. I have never made my own meatballs before, so I decided to give it a try, and I’m so happy I did, because they turned out amazing!!! So of course, I wanted to share this recipe with you all! 🙂
I pretty much followed a recipe from a blog I found on Pinterest (He and She Eat Clean: Clean Eating Power Meatballs), and made a few tweaks of my own :
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp sea salt (i used pink himalayan salt)
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (i added a little bit more for an extra kick!)
1/2 c rolled oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free rolled oats)
1 egg (beaten first)
1 tbspn of organic ketchup (I’m also thinking of adding a tbsn of sriracha next time!)
16 oz. lean ground turkey (you can sub this for lean ground beef or ground chicken)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl (using your hands is best to really get it all mixed together)
3. Shape mixture into 1″ round meatballs and place on baking sheet or in baking pan – I made about 16 meatballs.
4. Bake 23 minutes.
5. Enjoy!!! 🙂
