REMIX! Crispy Turkey & Sweet Potato Balls

A while back I made chicken and sweet potato patties and they were amazingly delicious. So, I wanted to remix the recipe and “faux” fry them. Only challenge – I did not want to pack in extra breaded carbohydrates and I also wanted to keep the recipe gluten-free. I did not like using gluten-free breadcrumbs because they have a slight taste of “cornbread.”

I settled on using Quest Protein Chips - only 5g carbs, packed with protein AND gluten-free.  They provided the crunchiness that I was looking for and also added a bit of flavor as well.  Perfect as snacks or as a main dish for your lunch or dinner.

Ingredients for at least 8 balls:

  • 8oz extra lean ground turkey
  • 500g baked sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour (or wheat or oat flour but then it may not be gluten-free)
  • 2 bags Quest Protein Chips (I am looking for another substitute for this but as of right now, this is the lowest carb and gluten free alternative I have found)
  • 2 green onions (chopped)
  • 1.5 tbsp McCormick’s low sodium chili seasoning
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste

Approximate macros per ball:

124 calories, 14g protein, 15g carbs, 1g fat
