These tasty little nuggets are a variation on a theme…I used turkey for this recipe but they can be made with nearly any protein you like (meat, fish, or fowl). They are really delicious but the best part is how easy they are to make…mix everything together and cook them. Simple as that.
Turkey Meatballs with Red Pepper, Green Onion, Jalapeño, and Feta
Makes about 3 dozen small meatballs
1 pound ground turkey
½ red bell pepper, diced
1 bunch green onion, sliced thinly
2 jalapeños, minced
2 large eggs
2 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed and diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 ounces feta cheese
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Allow to rest for 5 minutes, then mix thoroughly again. Shape into meatballs. Cook the meatballs in a skillet, in an oven, or poach them in sauce.
