Turkey Swedish Meatballs

This has easily become a family favorite! I am always looking for new recipes for ground turkey and this one is a home run! The best part of it is that it only takes 10 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook. These meatballs can be served alone or over pasta.

Turkey Swedish Meatballs
Adapted from The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook.

3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup lower-sodium chicken broth
3 tbs reduced-fat sour cream
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley

Mix together salt, allspice, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add turkey and gently mix with hands to combine; shape into 24 (1-inch) balls.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook until browned, about 3 minutes; lower heat to medium and cook 3 more minutes, gently shaking pan. Using slotted spoon, transfer meatballs to a plate.

Add broth to the same skillet, increase heat to medium-high, and simmer until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Whisk in sour cream and cook 1 minute more. Add meatballs. Sprinkle with parsley and serve hot.
