TGIF – Chicken Apple Meatballs

05 Apr

TGIF Followers!
One of my favorite things in life is chicken-apple sausage. However traditional sausage is usually very processed and full of preservatives and other things that quite possibly might be the reason why children these days have Triple-D boobs at the age of 9. I decided to try making something similar without all the crap. I chose cupcake sized meatballs because i’m not in any sort of denial about how greedy I am, therefore I need pre-fixed portions of food…even the “good for you” food. These easy meatballs provide the perfect portion-controlled balance of sweet and savory. This is an experiment and my first time making these so lets pause briefly for a prayer that they turn out ok…

FYI I used a combination of 1/2lb of 98% fat free ground chicken and 1/2lb of ground turkey. You can use which ever meat your heart desires (beef, pork, bison, etc.)

Ingredients
▶Extra virgin olive oil for spray
▶1/2 lb ground chicken
▶1/2 lb ground turkey
▶1 large or 2 small red apple (peeled and diced finely)
▶Medium onion, diced finely (about 1/4 cup diced)
▶2 garlic cloves, minced Pantry
▶1 egg, lightly-beaten
▶1/4 cup almond meal
▶1 tbsp honey
▶3/4-1tsp each of: garlic powder, jamaican jerk blend, cayenne pepper, Trader Joes 21seasoning salute & fine herbs from Savory Spice

▶(Note: Season to your likeness, the above are just my faves…you perhaps can you use simple sea salt and pepper if you prefer)

Directions
▶Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

▶Preheat oven to 375 degrees
▶Lightly spray cupcake tins
▶Form mixture into meatballs w/your hands or use ice cream scooper

▶Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until meatballs are lightly-browned on the outside and cooked through on the inside.

Perfect as a breakfast side with eggs & Paleo oatmeal or lunch with mashed sweet Potatos

Side Note: I’m thinking it will be a good idea next time to brown on the stove-top before baking in the oven…hmmmm
