Easy Southwestern Turkey Meatballs (Gluten Free)
Guest post by Barbara, owner of the blog, The Bold Blend. These spicy meatballs are wonderful dipped in a bit of salsa. Perfect as an appetizer. This recipe makes approximately 14 to 16 meatballs. Ingredients: 1.2 lb package of ground turkey meat 1 egg 2 cloves of garlic, crushed 2 tablespoon of coconut oil (melted) 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon of chili powder 1 teaspoon of cumin 1 tablespoon of parsley or cilantro 1/2 teaspoon of salt Directions: Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients well. Form mixture into 1.5″ balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake the meatballs at 350 F for 20 minutes* or until cooked through. Serve immediately. *Note: Our new house has a snazzy oven that cooks a lot faster than the 35 year old model in our old house. If your oven was installed during the Reagan administration, expect a slightly longer cook time.
