Oh these look wonderful!! I'm gonna copy & paste it here cuz sometimes the links stop working and then others may not be able to view it.

Low Fat Turkey Meatballs

about 25 meatballs

This is popular in the Greek culture and is used as an appetizer. Although usually prepared with lamb, I decided to produce a lighter version of this wonderful recipe.

1 lb turkey breast tenderloin
3 slices light oatmeal bread
1/4 cup water
1 egg white
1/2 cup yellow onion, finely grated
1 tsp. garlic, chopped
1 Tbs. mustard
1/2 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. oregano, dried
1/8 tsp. pepper
dash of salt
light cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Trim away fat from turkey. Process turkey in a food processor until finely chopped.

Remove crust from bread and tear into big chunks. Add the bread and water to processor and process until a dough like ball forms.
Remove and place in a large mixing bowl. Add egg white, mustard, onion, garlic, mint, cumin, oregano, pepper, and salt.

Work by hand until all ingredients are well combined. Form into 24 meatballs, using 2 tablespoons of mixture for each.

Spray a nonstick baking sheet with light cooking spray. Place the meatballs on the sheet. Bake for about 4 minutes, turn, and bake for another 3-4 minutes more, until crispy brown.
