Turkey Meatballs

1 package (about 1.25 lb) leanest ground turkey
1 egg, lightly beaten
scant 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp brown sugar


Add all the seasonings to the flour and mix. Add turkey, egg, and seasoned flour to a big bowl and squoosh it around with your hands until well mixed.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.

Roll about half of the turkey mixture into small balls, I'd say small walnut sized, and add to the hot pan. Roll the other half of the turkey into balls while the first batch cooks. After the first side has browned, turn the meatballs over to brown another side, I like to use long pinchy tongs for this. You'll probably want to turn them one more time to get them good and browned, then you can just stir them around the pan a bit for the final cooking time. My meatballs take about ten minutes total to cook, but pans and meatball size may cause the time to vary. Cut one in half to check that they are cooked all the way through.

Remove the meatballs to a plate lined with paper towels. Spray the pan again with cooking spray and repeat with the last batch of meatballs.

I serve these plain for the kids, but they're also good in spaghetti sauce or mixed with black beans, salsa, melted cheese, and a dollop of sour cream or yogurt.
