This Spanish twist on meatballs has a healthy twist they’re made with ground turkey, a heart-healthier alternative to ground beef.
For the Meatballs
2 lb 93/7 lean ground turkey
1 cup bread crumbs 125g
1 cup grated manchego cheese 113g, plus additional, for garnish
½ cup minced red onion 75g
1 tbsp minced fresh garlic 8g
2 large eggs
4 tsp smoked paprika 8g
2 tsp kosher salt 12g
1 tsp ground black pepper 6g
2 tbsp olive oil 30mL
Preheat oven to 425F. In a large bowl stir together turkey, bread crumbs, cheese, onion, garlic, eggs, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Line two rimmed sheet pans with aluminum foil; spray with cooking spray.
Using a small (1 oz.) scoop or a tablespoon, scoop out meatballs, and place on prepared baking sheets.
Drizzle meatballs with olive oil; bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
