  • Summary

    This is a recipe for turkey meatballs, packed with veggies, with a simple cooking cheat.

    Ingredients

    • 8 large tomatoes (if you're using a smaller tomato, like a Roma, then you need to increase to 16)
    • 2 small sweet peppers
    • 6 green onions
    • 3 cloves fresh garlic
    • 1-2 tbsp corn starch
    • Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil, Garlic
    • Mrs. Dash Italian Medley
    • Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb (We really like garlic, but if you aren't a huge fan, you can leave this out.)
    • Crock Pot
    • Blender or food processor
    • 1.25 lbs ground lean turkey
    • 1 small sweet pepper (if you're trying to disguise it so the kids won't notice, use the yellow variety)
    • 1/4 cup diced purple onion (or any onion but we like the flavor of these the best)
    • 1 loaf bread heel
    • muffin tin
