I don't think I know anyone who likes balsamic vinegar quite as much as Justin. He will literally drown his food in it. And I like it too (not quite to the same extent, but I love the flavor). So last night I decided to cook turkey meatballs in it.
-1/2 package Jennie-O extra lean ground turkey
-2 tbsp diced carrot
-2 tbsp diced onion
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
-1 tbsp italian breadcrumbs
-1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-2 tbsp tomato sauce
-pinch of dried basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper
-salad, pasta marinara (anything else you like), to make it a meal
For starters, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Then prepare the turkey seasonings that need to be diced/minced. You can pulse stuff in a food processor to get it looking like this, or you can do it with a sharp knife. Above is my bowl of chopped up parsley, garlic, onion, carrot.
I added the turkey meat, balamic, and marinara.
Got my hands in there and mixed it all together.
Formed 15 meatballs and sauteed them in a pan for a bit (I didn't use oil so I was careful to keep them moving and prevent burning).
