recipe time...

so i was supposed to start working my way through the biggest loser cookbook this week but i had a slight detour when my mother in law gave me a huge loaf of french bread and i got a sudden craving for a meatball sub. i found a super easy meatball recipe online then modified it to be healthier and made josh a turkey sub instead because he doesn't like meatballs... crazy i tell ya! so here's the recipe with my modifications:

1lb. ground sirloin
1/2 lb. ground turkey breast
1 egg
3T worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 C italian bread crumbs

mix well, scoop into balls, i used a cookie dough scoop to make balls about an inch in diameter and ended up with 52 meatballs which fit just about perfectly onto a single cookie sheet. bake at 350F until done (approx 20 minutes).
i cut the bread into sub buns and put them in the oven with mozzarella cheese so that it got melty and toasty and then added pasta sauce to the meatballs and scooped them onto the cheesy bread. chip said the sandwich filled him up, brian and i had salad on the side and josh ate turkey instead since he doesn't like meatballs but we had a good dinner and i have enough meatballs left over to put with pasta tomorrow night!

btw...for those that care, 6 meatballs are about 4 points.
