Turkey Meatballs and Sauteed Veggies!

Well... Hello there. Its Wednesday night but I feel like it should be Friday! What the heck is up with this week.... It may be the butt-kicking I am getting at boot camp! If you're as tired as I am then you will appreciate this quick and tasty delight. 
Try this recipe for those days when you are in a hurry!  Make a batch of these at the beginning of the week & grab them as you need a quick, clean meal. I like mixing Siracha and mustard together as a spicy dip for them!

1 lb ground organic ground turkey 
1 egg 
1 cup of quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dry yellow mustard
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 celery stalk, finely chopped (approx 1/2 cup)
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped (approx 1/2 cup)


Step One: Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheet with foil or muffin tins (although the muffin tins got a little messy so I suggest the baking sheet and foil method).

Step Two: Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.

Step Three: Roll the mixture into balls & place on the baking sheet or in your muffin tin. (Have fun with this... its the nasty sticky part!)

Step Four: Bake for 40 minutes (This may vary depending on your oven.  I would suggest using a meat thermometer to ensure your meat is fully cooked).
Makes approx 12 muffins

We had sauteed peppers, onion, and zucchini as our side. Veggies were sauteed in a tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon of garlic. It was so simple and a delicious filing dinner.
