The Sick-of-Turkey-Burgers Supper
Dieters love turkey because it's even lower in fat and calories than chicken, but it can get boring quickly. Turkey meatballs, though, have many possibilities: You can tuck them into pitas, lay them atop whole wheat pasta, or make them mini and incorporate them into a larger apps-for-dinner spread (they'd go wonderfully with crudités and black bean dip).

Make it: In a large bowl, mix a pound of ground turkey meat, bread crumbs from one slice of whole wheat bread, a minced small onion, 2 minced garlic cloves, a small handful of finely chopped parsley, a beaten egg, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, salt and pepper. Form into meatballs and broil on a greased baking sheet for 10 minutes or until cooked through.
