Healthy Eating

Growing up I HATED was not especially fond of ground turkey. I have grown to like it and especially am fond of these easy to make and yummy tasting turkey meatballs with an odd twist of salsa. The salsa adds such a fun twist to what you would normally consider an Italian dish.

Salsa Turkey Meatballs

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, minced (1/4 cup)
1 egg
1 jar (16 ounces) thick 'n chunky salsa
2 medium green onions, thinly sliced

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients except salsa and green onions. Shape mixture into twenty 1-1/2 inch meatballs.

Place in ungreased rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or meatballs are done.

In 2-quart saucepan, place salsa and meatballs. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until salsa and meatballs are hot. Sprinkle with green onions.
