Turkey Meat Balls

I am not really sure who invented these, but since Shay is the only person I know of, I will call it her creation!!  She used to make her version of these ALL the time and now Matt and I make them ALL the time!  They are so delicious and a very healthy dinner option and fast and simple to make.  I have never measured out the ingredients when making these so the amounts listed below are just estimates. 


1 lb ground turkey

2 tbs cumin

1 tbs chili powder

1 tsp oregano

1 cup oats

3/4 cup chopped cilantro

3-4 garlic cloves (one elephant garlic clove)

2 eggs

1/4 red onion

one jar salsa



1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2.   Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

3.  Shape into 2-3 in balls.

4.  Place in a baking dish and cover with salsa.5.  Cover with lid or foil to keep moist during cooking.  Cook for about 30 minutes or until meat is cooked thoroughly. 

6.  I usually serve them with white sticky rice and veggie.  Tonight is was roasted brussel sprouts!
