No, that’s not a typo: I said “blocks.”
The “Turkey Meatball Problems” portion of the title is, in part, a tribute to Snooki and Deena of Jersey Shore fame…and also because I had some serious problems making these little guys round. That’s what happens when I make turkey meatballs. They turn into meat blocks.
Turkey Meat Blocks
1 lb ground turkey (I used dark meat and they came out just fine)
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 handful of fresh oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup almond meal or 1 few Tbsps of coconut flour (use your best judgement)
Add your sauce to the pan and heat for 10 to 15 minutes. I used Organic canned tomato sauce. I should have read the label though (BAD LEMON), because there was a little added sugar… ah well…such is life.
