I’ve been told these are best meatballs I’ve ever made 🙂 I’ve experimented with different things for a while now… but these are definitely my favorite!
2 lbs ground chicken
1 ¾ c. unseasoned breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
¼ c. milk
1 teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons BBQ sauce
Preheat oven to 425.
Mix all ingredients. Drop tablespoonfuls of mixture on well-greased baking sheets.
Cook for 15 – 25 minutes, turning once.
Makes 30 to 35 meatballs
1 (14 oz) can No salt added, diced tomatoes
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
Pour into a saucepan.
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
3 cups of water
1 teaspoon salt (add more or less to suit your tastes)
1 pkg artificial sweetener (I use Equal) or 2 teaspoons sugar
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon mustard powder
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
Heat on medium until boiling, stirring frequently.
So, some of my friends have to eat super healthy (as in low-fat, low-salt and low sugar) and I have been experimenting with a ton of new recipes but my greatest successes appear to be what I (or my friend Bella) come up with when there is no recipe, for instance tonight’s menu consisted of gyros, creamed corn, carrots, and for dessert; homemade (low-sugar) apple butter on wheat toast. If you know what a gyro is then you know they should have cucumber sauce, so here is mine and Bella’s recipe for low-fat and low-salt cucumber sauce:
1 cucumber, ground up ’til it’s like mush (don’t you love my wording)
1 container low-fat sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons ranch seasoning
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix all ingredients and chill for at least an hour.
