luckily, i have recently found a solution that james and i both love: buffalo turkey salad. no grease, no bones, no mess, and low carbs. if the meatballs are made in advance and frozen, buffalo turkey salad can make for a quick and healthy weeknight dinner!
Yield: 4 servings
Nutrition: 340 calories, 7 carbs per serving (salad ingredients excluded)
1 lb ground turkey
10 saltine crackers, crushed into crumbs
1/2 cup buffalo sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a medium-size bowl and mix well. Shape into balls and place onto a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with canola oil. Bake 25 minutes, or until fully cooked through. Use immediately or freeze for later use. If heating from frozen, microwave each serving 2-3 minutes.
Serve on romaine lettuce salad with carrots, cucumbers, celery, bell peppers, cheese, and ranch dressing. Pictured with mozzarella, though I often use feta cheese.
