Yield :

      • Makes 16 serving .

Ingredients :

      • 1 lb ground turkey
      • 1 egg
      • ¼ cup almond flour
      • ½ tsp salt
      • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
      • ½ tsp garlic powder
      • ½ cup shredded whole milk mozzarella
      • 2 Tbsp sun dried tomatoes, chopped
      • 2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
      • 2 Tbsp olive oil for frying

Preparation :

  • Combine all ingredients except the olive oil in a medium bowl, and mix thoroughly. Form into 16 meatballs.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick saute pan. Add the meatballs to the hot oil about 1 inch apart (you may have to do two batches) and cook over low/medium heat for about 3 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  • Because the cheese melts out a bit, be careful that they don’t burn – if they appear to be getting dark quickly, then turn down the heat and cook them at a lower temp.
  • Serve alone, with marinara sauce, or on skewers with fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and cherry tomatoes. Enjoy!
