dried plain breadcrumbs

3 Tbsp, plain variety

½ medium, minced

fat free cottage cheese

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a nonstick 10 x 15-inch jelly-roll pan with nonstick spray.
  2. To make the meatballs, combine the chicken, sausage, 1⁄2 cup of the bread crumbs, the bell pepper, cottage cheese, egg whites, scallions, and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl. Shape into 30 (1-inch) balls.
  3. Place the Parmesan cheese, pecans, and the remaining 3 tablespoons bread crumbs on wax paper. Roll the balls in the cheese mixture to coat evenly. Place in a single layer without touching each other on the jelly-roll pan. Bake until cooked through and lightly browned, about 25 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, to make the sauce, pulse the mango, yogurt, half-and-half, orange juice, honey, and pepper in a food processor until smooth. Serve with the meatballs. Yields 2 meatballs with 2 tablespoons sauce per serving.
