Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey Perdue No Antibiotics
  • ½ cup spinach chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp adobo seasoning
  • ¼ cup Japanese style panko
  • 1 tbsp fat free chopped garlic Spice World
  • 1 avocado
  • coconut cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • In a large bowl combine ground turkey, egg, spinach, garlic powder, ground black pepper, himalayan salt, onion powder, adobo seasoning, panko, and garlic.
  • In a separate small bowl, mash the avocado, using a fork. 
  • Using clean hands take a spoonful of ground turkey mix and roll into a ball.  Once formed, using your knuckle of your pointer finger, place an indent in the ball.  Scoop avocado mix with a spoon and place in indent.  Roll the ball again covering the avocado so that it's inside the ball.  
  • Spray a mini muffin tin with coconut cooking spray.  Place formed ball into muffin tin. Continue until all the ground turkey mix is done.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until balls are cooked through.
  • Serve over your choice of veggie or whole wheat pasta.

Notes

Can be served with your choice of sauce.  I made a homemade garlic sauce to sprinkle on top. I heated up 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a pot.  I added 1 tbsp. of fat free chopped garlic, 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour and mixed until a rouge was made.  I then added 1 cup almond milk and 1 tsp. of rosemary, 1 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. thyme, 1 tsp. of basil, and ground black pepper, and himalayan salt to taste.  Once that was heated up I poured it over my ground turkey balls!
