Don’t know if I invented them, because I refused to search the web to find them. So in my little world (which revolves around me) I invented them.
AND I love these because they are well.. delicious, and 95% South Beach friendly!
1/2 Lb. Ground Turkey (or beef, choose your poison)
1/2 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
~1/2 cup of breadcrumbs (I had to add a bit more b/c they were a bit wet still)
1/3 cp extra-diced white onion
3 cloves of garlic (personally thought it could have used more) (but that’s b/c I’m afraid of vampires).
2 stalks of green onions chopped fine
~2 tbs. of chopped cilantro
~1 tbs. ground cumin
~1/2 tsp chili powder
~1/8 tsp garlic salt
~1/8 tsp ground pepper
Note: Sorry about all the approximately action, I was just throwing things in
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl at once.
Mix with hands, and form balls put on greased cookie sheet
Bake for about 20 minutes.
ENJOY!! They are delicious with FF sour cream!!
