Spicy Turkey Zucchini Meatballs

Mama Lam’s Spicy Turkey Zucchini Meatballs

A Healthier Alternative

Everyone is trying to eat healthier nowadays. Try substituting ground beef or pork with ground turkey! Turkey is typically drier than other meats out there, so this recipe adds some diced up zucchini to moisten it up.

Of course, having the turkey meatballs on their own might seem boring. So, here are some ideas for you:

  • Make it a slider with a mini dinner roll

  • Add a side of vegetables – spinach or broccoli

  • Top it with a marinara sauce and serve with pasta

Let us know if you come up with more ideas!


Servings: 3 (approximately 10 mid-sized meatballs)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients
1 lb ground turkey
1 medium sized zucchini – skin on – diced into really small cubes
1 egg
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbs Mama Lam’s Hot Sauce (add 2 tbs if you want it spicier!)
