My awful meatballs

So I had 4 turkey patties from a tailgate and thought how awesome would it be to have meatballs. I found this recipe online for a paleo version. All the comments were promising so all seemed good…  And well, even after a few heavy additions of cayenne pepper it still was meh.  Not sure if it was the patties or not.  Will be trying another approach soon though – I have more patties!

Very light but kinda floury tasting. It needs more work, but here is what I started with….

~ 1 lb. ground turkey
1 egg
1-1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1-1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 C almond meal
pinch celtic grey sea salt
meatball topping:
1/4 C almond meal
2 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all ingredients, and use your hands to mix (it’s just the best way!). Form into about 2-1/2 inch diameter balls. Roll the meatballs in the almond meal topping and place them on a cookie sheet. I was able to make about 14-15 meatballs . Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until browned and cooked all the way through. They would be good served with just about ANY vegetable.

    You need egg yolks or something to hold them together and keep them moist!
