1 lb. ground turkey breast
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup skim milk
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup + 2 teaspoons Louisiana hot sauce
Light Bleu Cheese Dressing (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
In a large bowl, mix together bread crumbs and spices. Add the milk and egg; let breadcrumbs absorb the mixture for 5 minutes or so. Add turkey and mix well.
Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized meatballs in a cookie scoop. Place on a lined baking sheet. You should get about 26 meatballs.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through.
Add 1/3 cup hot sauce to a medium bowl. Add hot meatballs and mix together.
Serve immediately with a bit of parsley for garnish and a splash of light bleu cheese dressing if desired.
