Today’s recipes comes from one of my fitness friend, Monica Cianfrini. I made these meatballs last week and they were delicious!
Beef & Turkey Meatballs
1 package Ground Turkey*
1 package Ground Beef (preferable organic grass-fed)*
2 slices of Ezekiel bread toasted and then ground into breadcrumbs (or whole grain breadcrumbs)
1/2 medium size onion chopped
1 cup of dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of garlic seasoning
Squeeze of Sriracha hot sauce
*You can use 2 packages of turkey or beef
Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl.
Roll into 1.5 – 2 inch meatballs. Our family likes them bigger and I find they stay more tender.
Bake at 400F for 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and flip the meatballs over.
Continue checking until no redness instead of the meatball. I cut a meatball open in the middle of the pan and continue checking it every couple of minutes.
Combine with your favourite pasta sauce and pasta or eat as a snack!
