Lemon & Mint Turkey Meatballs. Yum.
These are so fresh, so tasty and so good for you!
I love fresh mint, but before this recipe I couldn’t imagine having it on anything other than a good bit of lamb. This does actually work really well with the lemon and turkey and it’s my new ultimate meatball recipe!
- 500g fresh lean turkey mince
- 1 small red onion, very finely chopped
- grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
- 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 egg, beaten
Step One: Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, making sure the mint and lemon are spread evenly throughout the turkey mince.
Step Two: Divide into small meatballs. I made about 20 with this amount of meat, but it’s up to you how big you like them! Cover and chill for a couple of hours because they are more likely to hold their shape.
Step Three: Cook! Cook in a frying pan with a little bit of oil (I use my trusted 1 cal spray!) and make sure you turn every couple of minutes. Cooked till piping hot and not pink in the middle.
These are so nice! You could quite easily turn these into some nice burgers as well!
