Default Asian Turkey Meatballs

This recipe is from the asian cooking class at my center. I had it for dinner tonight and it was super yummy!

Asian Turkey Meatballs
1lb ground turkey
1/2 c. chopped green pepper
1/4 c. chopped green onion
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder

glaze ingredients:
2 pkts peach mango concentrate
1 tsp chili pepper flakes
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Pre-heat oven to 400 then mix all meatball ingredients together by hand in a large bowl. Once mixed form into small balls and place on a baking sheet. (I weighed mine at 1oz each for simplicity) Cook meatballs for 15 minutes. While the meatballs are cooking mix the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Remove the meatballs from the oven and pour the glaze mixture over them. But the meatballs back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Cool and serve.

I fixed some steamed cabbage and mushrooms to go with and used that as the bed for the meatballs, then I crushed up a serving of the seseme melba toast and sprinked that on top. (reminded me of chow mein noodles)

Default MRC French Toast

This is from the cookbook put thought I'd post anyway. I've had this a couple of times and enjoyed it!

MRC French Toast
2 eggs or 3 egg whites
1 slice 40 calorie bread
1 packet splenda
cinnamon to taste

In a small bowl beat the 2 eggs and add 1/2 the packet of splenda and the cinnamon. Once the mixture is beaten soak the piece of bread in the mixture until the majority is absorbed. Take the bread and place of a pam sprayed skillet until done.

I then like to spray the french toast with ICBNB and add the other 1/2 packet of splenda.

I get plain unflavored whey protein powder at GNC. And the egg whites I use are the pasteurized liquid ones you get in the carton by the eggs. (Sorry I didn't see this sooner!)
