Swedish Meatballs

Serves: 12
Total Calories: 138


1 egg
1/2 cup low-fat milk (1%)
2 slices white bread, lightly toasted and made into coarse crumbs
1/2 small onion, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 pound ground skinless turkey breast
1/2 pound lean ground pork
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vegetable oil


1. In a large bowl, whisk the egg with the milk and bread crumbs let stand for 5 minutes. Add the onion, parsley, salt, allspice, and nutmeg blend well. Add the meats and stir with a fork until well blended. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.

2. Sprinkle the flour on a piece of waxed paper and place next to the meat bowl. Shape the meat into 48 meatballs, about 1 Tbsp each. Dip each meatball lightly in the flour and place on a baking sheet. Set aside.

3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil. Add half the meatballs and cook until browned all over, 5 minutes. Cover and cook the meatballs until the meat is no longer pink, 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally. (Remaining meatballs should be refrigerated.) Transfer the cooked meatballs to a bowl, cover, and keep warm.

4. Remove any small meat pieces from the skillet. Repeat step 3 with the remaining meatballs.
