Turkey Meatballs on a Plate

Serves 4 (makes approximately 16 meatballs; 4 per serving)

Meatballs:

  • ¾ lb turkey breast, boneless, skinless, ground
  • ¾ cup Old Fashioned oats
  • 3 tbsp organic unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup reduced sugar ketchup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp raw honey, melted
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil. Coat the tinfoil with cooking spray.

Grind the oats in a food processor until close to a flour-like consistency. Combine all meatball ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, kneading with fingers. Roll mixture into 16, 1 1/2 inch balls and place each on the cookie sheet, spacing evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until meatballs are browned.

Remove from oven and set aside, allowing to cool slightly.

In a small bowl, whisk together honey and Dijon mustard. Divide, using one quarter of the mixture to lightly coat the meatballs. Place remaining sauce into a dipping bowl. Serve.
