Hungry Girl Today: 2.20.14

WEEKLY WEIGH-IN

Don't ask us why meatballs are so much fun -- they just ARE! So we've come up with a couple of great new recipes, inspired by other foods we also love. Have a ball (or two... or three)!


Hungry Girl's Pizza Meatballs

1/8th of recipe (3 meatballs): 114 calories, 4.5g fat, 256mg sodium, 2.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 1g sugars, 15.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Perfect as a party appetizer or part of a meal. Who doesn't want to dig into saucy cheese-smothered meatballs?


Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
16 slices turkey pepperoni, chopped
2 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/8 tsp. salt
1/3 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cook and stir until softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

Transfer cooked veggies to a large bowl. Add beef, chopped pepperoni, egg substitute, garlic powder, basil, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Firmly and evenly form into 24 meatballs, and place them evenly spaced on the baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Gently flip meatballs, and arrange them closely in the center of the sheet. Evenly top with sauce and cheese. Bake until meatballs are cooked through, sauce is hot, and cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.

1 cup shredded carrots, finely chopped

1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
2 1/4 tsp. ranch dressing/seasoning mix

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients except yogurt and ranch seasoning. Firmly and evenly form into 24 meatballs, and place them evenly spaced on the baking sheet.


Bake for 10 minutes. 



Gently flip meatballs. Bake until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix Greek yogurt with ranch seasoning until uniform.

Serve meatballs with dip. Enjoy!
