Ingredients

 

1.25 lbs 93% lean ground turkey

1 cup grated zucchini, liquid squeezed out well

2 slices whole wheat bread

1/4 cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs

1 large egg

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 red onion, grated (I used my mini food processor)

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

Instructions

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 very low heat (or you can make 350F 20-25 minutes)

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