On the Menu Tonight…Gluten Free Turkey Meatballs..

     Happy Monday Family..Well as I said on our Facebook page I was going to be giving some recipes for the meals I created & froze on Saturday. Tonight I used the meatballs and made meatball subs with Tator Tots….Next week I will be making my own fries as well so no more packaged potatoes. I use oatmeal in my meatballs instead of bread crumbs so it is safe to say they are also gluten free. I know I used a roll for subs but you can use then for your gluten free spaghetti as well..This is later in the week 🙂 By the way I did find a website that explains Ore -Ida also now carries over 30 different Gluten Free products. So even my Tator Tots were gluten Free..http://www.oreida.com/Hot-Potato-Topics/2013/Rethink-Potatoes#
     I am not going totally Gluten Free I am just trying to do some healthier lower calorie recipes, but if I can accommodate some people that makes me happy too.So here is my recipe I use for my turkey meatballs…
36 oz lean ground turkey
1 egg
3 tsp garlic
4 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
3 tsp Italian seasonings
1 cup dry oatmeal
Roll into balls around 2- 2 1/2 inches. Put on a cookie sheet and bake for about 40 minutes at 375 degrees. You can let them cool down and freeze for a later date or serve them immediately just add your favorite sauce.
This made 18 meatballs..I divided it into 3 meals so Hubby and I get 3 each.3 meatballs came out to 265 calories and 43 grams of protein. (This is without sauce)
