Sometimes we just need to make our meals simple and satisfying, along with keeping it clean! I made this new recipe just trying it out since I need more crock pot recipes for my challengers, and this hit the spot! Hope you all like!!
1 large egg
1 pound 99% lean ground turkey
1/3 cup Panko whole wheat breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoons dried basil
3/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 large onion sweet onion, sliced
1 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes
1. Beat the egg in a large mixing bowl. Add the ground turkey, Panko, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, parmesan, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Mix everything up just so the ingredients are combined – avoid overmixing. Roll into desired size balls, about the size of a golfball works well. Place all rolled meatballs on a large baking sheet. 2. Place onion slices in the bottom of the crockpot, topped with 1 can of crushed tomatoes.
3. Coat a large skillet with remaining Tablespoon of olive oil and bring to medium-high heat. Lightly brown the meatballs (only 6-8 meatballs at a time) for about 1 minute on each side. Layer the meatballs into the crockpot as you’re browning each batch. Once all browned meatballs have been added to the crockpot, pour remaining can of tomatoes on top.
4. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Serve with whole wheat pasta or with whole wheat bread as a meatball sub and serve with a side salad. Would love your feedback once you try it!!
