Prep Time   5 minutes Cook Time   20 minutes Serves  4

Ingredients

No-stick cooking spray
1 pound ground turkey
2/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 large egg
3 tablespoons grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons Dried Plum Puree
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Prepared pasta sauce and cooked spaghetti (optional) or Cajun Dried Plum Barbecue Sauce (optional)


Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. In large bowl combine all ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Form mixture into 20 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs. (For best flavor and appearance, form and cook meatballs immediately after mixing meat mixture.) Place meatballs on baking sheet; bake 18 to 22 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color. Serve as a main dish with your favorite pasta sauce and spaghetti or as an appetizer with Cajun Dried Plum Barbecue Sauce for dipping.

Dried Plum Purée:

In food processor container, combine 2/3 cup (4 ounces) pitted dried plums and 3 tablespoons water; process on and off until finely chopped. (Makes 1/2 cup)
