Ingredients

FOR THE TURKEY MEATBALLS

  • 1 pound ground turkey meat , 95% lean
  • 1/3 cup plain panko crumbs or plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled fat free feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped STAR Reduced Sodium Pimiento Stuffed Olives
  • 2 green onions , cut into thin slices (trim the tops and ends and discard)
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
  • 1 large egg , lightly beaten

FOR THE SKEWERS

  • 8 to 10 bamboo skewers
  • green , red, and orange pepper, cut into 1-inch squares (I use the mini bell peppers)

Instructions 

  • Heat a grill to medium-high.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine turkey meat, bread crumbs, feta, olives, green onions, garlic, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and egg; mix well to combine.
  • With moistened hands, shape mixture into 16 meatballs, about 2 inches in diameter.
  • Thread the meatballs and peppers alternately onto skewers.
  • Lightly oil the grates of the grill.
  • Place the meatball skewers on the grill and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, rotating about every 3 minutes to cook evenly. Meatballs should be just cooked through, but not overcooked.
  • Serve warm with Garlic Yogurt Sauce

Notes
