Eggless Turkey Meatballs
As a mom of a baby with an egg allergy I am constantly on the hunt for recipes that avoid egg altogether, finding interesting new replacements for the common binder all the time. This time the solution: unsweetened applesauce! These meatballs are really delicious because they are packed with flavor and they’re a favorite in our house for adults & baby alike!
What I Used:
1lb ground turkey thigh
3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp panko bread crumbs
2 tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
🧂Salt & pepper .
Combine the breadcrumbs and applesauce in a large bowl and let sit for a couple of minutes to soak together.
Add all of the other ingredients and mix well
Form into golf ball sized balls
Brown on all sides in a pan or in your slow cooker if you’re lucky enough to have one with a browning function like mine!
Set in the slow cooker on low, cover with a jar of tomato sauce, and cook for 3-4 hours.
*** As a side note when I doubled this recipe it made about 20 meatballs. We ate 5 each for dinner, then I had 5 for leftovers and 5 that I froze for Ford.
