I love these and you will too! A great source of healthy protein. Be sure to add a generous amount of fresh garlic to maximize the anti-aging, blood sugar-lowering, fat-burning potential nutrition in this recipe.

1 lb ground free range organic turkey or chicken
1 raw egg
1 onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp sea salt or so, to taste
1 slice gluten free bread, blended into crumbs in a food processor,
1⁄2 cup oatmeal, 1⁄2 cup ground flax seeds, or any combination of these
2 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
chopped fresh basil, oregano, parsley, thyme OR
1-2 tsp dried oregano and basil

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on cookie sheets (with sides) or a shallow baking pan.

In a big bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. Mix with clean hands or large wooden spoon. Roll into 1 1⁄2” sized balls, and place on the baking sheet in oven. Make sure they are spread out so they are not touching, so they can brown.

Cook for about 10 minutes or so, turn (or roll) and cook another ten minutes, for a total of about 20 minutes. Done when outside is golden brown and inside is no longer pink.

Serve with your favorite organic spaghetti sauce and steamed spaghetti squash, or just eat plain alongside a salad, green beans or broccoli. even Cold or hot leftover meatballs are delicious on salad for healthy lunch–and they make a great snack too! Serves 4.
