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)
1/4 cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
1 large egg
2-3 cloves garlic, grated
1/4 red onion, grated
2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped (less if using dry)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh spearmint, chopped
kosher salt and fresh pepper
about 1 tsp worth of olive oil cooking spray


Wet bread with water, squeezing excess out. Tear into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Combine with turkey, egg, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, mint, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, form each meatball 1/4 cup in size. For best results,refrigerate before cooking to help hold their shape.

In a pan: spray olive oil in a large nonstick frying pan and cook over low heat.

On the grill: clean grill well before cooking and spray grate with oil. Cook on low until cooked through. Makes about 17 meatballs.
