If Oprah's craving a healthy, protein-packed meal, she requests these turkey meatballs, which can be served with the tomato sauce of your choice.
Servings: Makes 15–20 meatballs
- 2 pounds ground turkey
- 1 medium onion , chopped
- 1/2 red pepper , chopped
- 1/2 green pepper , chopped
- 3 cloves garlic , chopped
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp. bread crumbs
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. ground pepper
- Olive oil or vegetable oil
Heat oil in large skillet (use enough oil to cover just the bottom of skillet). Add onion and stir briefly, until it's almost yellow. Add red pepper, green pepper and fry for 2 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 2 minutes, then remove from stove to cool. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Place flour on a large plate (for ease in creating the balls). With a wooden spoon, mix together turkey, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, sautéed onions and peppers, and bread crumbs. Form a tablespoon size of the turkey mixture in the shape of ball. Place each meatball in skillet and fry until slightly brown. Slightly press the center of each meatball to make sure the center cooks.
Arrange on serving platter. Sprinkle ground pepper over top of each.
