Turkey Meatballs...

atomicpurple | Feb 18, 2014 07:12 AM

Don't be hard on me - I don't cook a lot, but have been lately trying to reduce fat and cholesterol. Anyhow, dumb question here... I make turkey meatballs (97% fat free) and in addition to the normal stuff/spices/egg beaters I add one whole finely chopped red pepper per pound of ground turkey. This and paprika I found makes them less grey and both visually and taste-wise more appealing. Anyhow, by the time they come out of the oven (and I do flip them midway) they always look like mini sliders instead of meatballs - probably because of the higher moisture. Any suggestions? I have tried increasing the panko which did help. Thanks, Will
