There’s a fun surprise inside each meatball—a pocket of gooey cheese. We use a combination of blue cheese for its rich flavour and cream cheese for its smooth creaminess

Ingredients

Low fat cream cheese

4 tbsp(s)

Blue cheese

2 oz, crumbled

Uncooked 99% fat-free ground turkey breast

1 pound(s)

Dry potato flakes

½ cup(s)

Table salt

¾ tsp(s), divided

Black pepper

½ tsp(s), divided

Uncooked onion(s)

½ small, grated on large holes of a box grater

Raw egg(s)

1 large

Plain fat free Greek yogurt

cup(s)

Fat free buttermilk

3 tbsp(s)

Chives

1 tbsp(s), thinly sliced

Garlic powder

¼ tsp(s)

Hot pepper sauce

3 tbsp(s)

Apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp(s)

Regular butter

1 tbsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine cream cheese and blue cheese in a small bowl and mash together with a fork.
  3. Combine turkey, potato flakes, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp pepper, onion, and egg in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 16 equal portions. Flatten each portion slightly and place about ¾ tsp cheese mixture in the middle. Seal meat tightly around cheese and roll into a ball. Arrange meatballs on baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine yogourt, buttermilk, chives, garlic powder, ¼ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp pepper.
  5. Combine pepper sauce, vinegar, and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover loosely and microwave on High until butter melts, about 1 minute. Transfer hot meatballs to bowl, and toss to coat with sauce. Serve meatballs with yogurt sauce.
  6. Serving size: 4 meatballs and about 2 Tbsp sauce
