1/2cupbread crumbs, plain (gluten-free or regular)
1/2lemon, juiced (optional to add the zest of lemon)
4teaspoonslemon pepper seasoning
Preheat over to 350F degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease pans and set aside.
Add ground turkey to a large mixing bowl. Add breadcrumbs and lemon pepper seasoning over turkey.
In a separate small bowl add lemon juice (and zest, if using) and eggs. Whisk until well combined.
Add lemon juice mixture to the turkey bowl. Use your hands to gently fold all ingredients until blended.
Use a small cookie scoop or shape a tablespoon of turkey into meatballs. Place approximately 22 meatballs per prepared sheet pan.
Cook for 17-20 minutes until meatballs are golden brown.
I used a small cookie scooper (approximately a tablespoon size) to form the meatballs, which really speeds up the process and eliminates the need to roll them.I like this low calorie ground turkey recipe, but if you prefer you could use any type of ground meat.To make it gluten-free or Paleo friendly, just use shredded zucchini or any other type of squash or ground nuts in place of the bread crumbs.Serving size: 4 meatballsWeight Watchers PointsPlus: *5Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints: *4
