Part of our Girls' Night In dinner.

Mini Turkey Meatballs and Tomatoes

12 oz. lean ground turkey
½ onion, grated or finely diced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped
2 tbsp grated parmesan
1 tbsp olive oil
16 oz. canned diced tomatoes
salt and pepper

Combine turkey, onion, garlic, half the oregano, and parmesan in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Roll into 40 bite sized balls.

Heat oil in large skillet. Add meatballs and cook, stirring gently to brown on all sides. When brown, add tomatoes and the rest of the oregano. Season with salt and pepper and simmer gently for 20 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.

Makes 4 servings.

Hilary accidentally put all the oregano in the meatballs, instead of saving half for the sauce. And it was just great! I think we used Italian-style tomatoes, so they probably had more in there as well.

The meatballs going into the pan.
