I don’t often cook with turkey – usually preferring chicken. But the other day I saw a special offer on ground turkey and fancied making some meatballs!
Mix together the ground turkey, onion powder, ricotta, beaten egg, fresh or dried thyme and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Form the mixture into 20 meatballs and place on a baking tray lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Place in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through, turning over half way through cooking time.
Drain on paper towels and let cool – or add them to a sauce!
These meatballs are lovely and soft so you could serve them on skewers with a dipping sauce for an appetizer or party food idea. They are easy to transport for lunch on the go. Or as a main meal you could add them to a tomato marinara type sauce or (as shown below) a simple sauce made from heavy cream and wholegrain mustard. Shown here served over shirataki rice – this whole meal was under 5g net carbs (I had two servings of meatballs as I was SUPER hungry!).Turkey Meatballs with Thyme and Ricotta #lowcarb Click To Tweet
