Ingredients

  • Meatballs:
  • 1 pound 93/7 lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 container sabra hummus any flavor
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 of an onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Skewers:
  • 24 basil leaves
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 12 mini mozzarella balls
  • Balsamic reduction I used one that comes in a squeeze tube, but you can make your own

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine all meatball ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temp is 165 or greater.
  • Assemble your skewers. Start with basil, then 1/2 cherry tomato, 1/2 mini mozzerella ball, and finally the meatball. Drizzle with balsamic reduction.
