Baked Turkey Paleo Meatballs

Ahhhh. Finally! I have been craving meatballs! These have been on the agenda for a couple days, but the timing was finally right tonight! I liked these a lot because they're not fried. There was no greasy splatter on the stove! They were filling, satisfying, and super tasty! Scott sauteed some summer squash to go with them (we like to call it flying saucer squash). Hope you enjoy!

~ 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! I am just so glad there are leftovers! Yum....

Served these with some stir-fried yu choy and spinach (with garlic and a pinch of salt). Mmmmm, mmmm, good.
