Protein-Packed Turkey Meatballs

Protein-Packed Turkey Meatballs

The perfect meatball packed with protein!  I love preparing these at the beginning of a busy week and adding them to simple recipes like salads, soups, rice bowls, etc.  You can also cook them and freeze for future easy thawing and use.  

Makes: 12 meatballs

Macros: 3 meatballs (10 P | 4 C | 1 F ) 


  • 1 small zucchini, grated

  • 16oz. extra lean ground turkey

  • 1/2 cup quick oatmeal

  • 1/4 white onion diced

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder (optional but very nice)

  • 1 medium diced tomato

  • 2 egg whites

  • salt to taste

  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Frank’s Original)

  • A pinch of pepper

  • Hot sauce
  • Lime wedges
  • Cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F

  2. Mix all ingredients into a bowl

  3. Scoop into 12 meatballs and place on cookie sheet

  4. Transfer to oven to bake until cooked through

  5. Add hot sauce, lime wedges and cilantro!

Pro-tip: These taste EVEN BETTER COLD THE NEXT DAY.  I love eating them with rice or zoodles and lime.
