Asian MeatballsI found this delightful recipe in Weight Watchers “Simply The Best” Cookbook. These meatballs are sooooo good, you would never guess they are so low in calories and fat! You can serve them as appetizers or enjoy them on a bed of rice for a satisfying meal!

10 ounces ground skinless turkey breast
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and minced
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup fine dried bread crumbs
2 tablespoons minced water chestnuts
1 egg white
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup sweet and sour sauce
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a non-stick jelly-roll pan with non-stick cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, lightly combine the turkey, pepper, scallions, bread crumbs, water chestnuts, egg white and soy sauce. Shape mixture into 32 equal meatballs, about 1-inch each; place on the pan. Bake until cooked through and browned, about 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, in a 2-quart microwaveable dish, combine the sweet and sour sauce and applesauce; microwave on High until hot and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Gently stir in the meatballs and serve with toothpicks.
