I love, love, love all things Italian. As I’ve said before, I make spaghetti using shirataki noodles, so I can still indulge in the yummy sinful-flavors of spaghetti without all the diabetic harming carbs. I also love meatballs, and I’ve come up with a meatball that is baked and has no bread whatsoever, so they are virtually carb-free. I call them patties because I roll the ball, then squish it down so that it cooks faster/more evenly in the oven than a ball does. These are super easy to make, too!
1lb lean ground beef
1 lb extra lean ground turkey breast
1/4 cup dried basil
1/8 cup dried oregano
1/2 bunch green onions finely minced
1 heaping Tblsp minced garlic
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
2 whole eggs
pepper to taste
Mix it all together with your hands and form into large balls. Place on foil covered baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Smash a little flat.
Bake at 350 for 20-30 min until lightly browned.
Add to your favorite spaghetti sauce, or just dip them. Any way you want them, they’re yummy!
