Turkey Meatballs

Hey there UFG'ers! No joke - these meatballs are out of this world.  I wish I would have made an extra batch to freeze!   In the above picture, they are paired with 1 1/2 yellow squashes, 1 oz dry whole wheat pasta and 1/2 cup of red sauce.  Delish and filling.  Recipe after the jump!

1lb Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tsp parsley
2 tsp basil
2 tbsp egg beaters
1 tbsp grated Pecorino cheese

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Form into golf ball size meatballs.  Should make around 18 meatballs.  In a skillet, spray non stick spray. 

Brown meatballs over medium heat on all sides until cooked through. 

Simmer in sauce, or enjoy on their own!  Serving size is 3 meatballs.
