  • Type AB (2 beneficials)
  • Type B (1 beneficials)
  • Type O (0 beneficials)

  • Entree

  • 1 pound turkey, ground
  • 2 each egg
  • 3/4 cup Ezekiel or spelt bread. crumbled
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pecorino romano, grated (from sheep or soy if for A, AB, O; from regular dairy if for B)

How to make it:
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Toss gently with your hands until the meat has become thoroughly blended with all the seasonings. The mixture should be fairly moist.
  2. To form the meatballs, wet your hands in a small bowl of lukewarm water and then pick up about 1/3 C. of the meatball mix. Roll it in the palm of your hands to form a smooth ball about 1 in. in diameter.
  3. Drop the meatballs directly into your basic sauce recipe. Or, if you prefer a crusty meatball, fry in approximately 3 T. of olive oil on medium heat for about 5 min., turning to brown evenly. Then drop them into gently boiling sauce as they are browned.
  4. Meatballs take 20 min. to cook well.
  5. Yield: 15-18 medium meatballs or 40-45 tiny meatballs
  6. Fry or bake in oven til done (if you have a convection oven, you don't have to turn them over!)
  7. Freeze in ziplocs.
  8. Thaw and reheat.
