Greek Turkey Meatballs

Greek Turkey Meatballs
  • 1.25 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup zucchini, grated and liquid squeezed out
  • 2 sliced whole wheat bread (I used Weight Watchers)
  • ¼ cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • ¼ red onion, grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped (less if using dry)
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh spearmint, chopped
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper
  • about 1 tsp worth of olive oil cooking spray
  1. Wet bread with water, squeezing excess out.
  2. Tear into small pieces and place in a large bowl.
  3. Combine with turkey, egg, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, mint, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper.
  4. Using a ¼ cup measure, form each meatball ¼ cup in size. For best results, refrigerate before cooking to help hold their shape.
  5. In a pan: spray olive oil in a large nonstick frying pan and cook over low heat.
  6. On the grill: clean grill well before cooking and spray grate with oil. Cook on low until cooked through.
  7. Makes about 17 meatballs.
