These were very good, moist, easy to make meatballs. Instead of cooking them in a skillet I decided to bake them. Only because when I made these, I had too much going on with the stove top as it was. :)
I served these on whole wheat sandwich thins (cut the meatballs in half to make it easier to eat) with some tomatoes and tzatziki sauce. I made them a couple days ahead, then just reheated them in a small pot when we were ready to eat.
1.25 lbs lean ground turkey
1 c zucchini, grated and squeezed to remove excess liquid
2 slices whole wheat bread
1/4 c bread crumbs (I used Panko)
1 large egg
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c red onion, finely minced
1 1/2 t dry oregano
1/2 c fresh parsley, chopped
1 t dried mint
Salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Wet bread with water and squeeze dry. Break into small pieces and place in a medium bowl. Combine remaining ingredients until just mixed.
Form into small meatballs - about 1" in diameter. I made about 18 meatballs.
Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature reaches 165.
