Turkey Bacon Meatballs






     If you are going "high protien low carb" and looking for ideas, I have another one to add to your list. Turkey Bacon Meatballs is one to try, each of the 4 servings are only 265 calories, 1g net carbs, 30g protein and 16g fat.  Add to a plate of mixed greens with your favorite Ranch Dressing, or make your own dipping sauce like I did.  Either way, check out these super filling meatballs for lunch or dinner, you will be glad you did!

Ingredients for 4~5 1/2oz servings~
8 slices cooked Turkey Bacon, crumbled
93% lean ground Turkey
1/4 cup grated Sharp Cheddar
1 jumbo Egg, beaten with a fork
1/4 cup diced Green Onions
1 Tablespoon chopped Garlic
Dash Lite Salt
Dash Cayenne Pepper
Dash Pepper

Bunch of Cilantro, chopped
Jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup Red Onion, chopped
1/2 cup light Mayo
2 Tablespoon White Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Spicy Mustard
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon chopped Garlic
Dash Salt
Dash Pepper

     Mix together first set of ingredients in bowl, separate into four equal portions, should be about 5 1/2oz or a scant 3/4 cup.  Divide each portion into 3 equal meatballs and rest on foil lined cake pan, bake at 375 for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, combine second set of ingredients in food processor til well combined and use as dipping sauce, all of these measurements are approximations, I did not accurately measure, and you can adjust according to your taste, nor do I have macro nutrient info.  Enjoy  :)
