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
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.
