11/2 pounds lean ground turkey
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 egg whites
2–4 slices whole-grain bread, no sugar added, toasted and processed in food processor for bread crumbs
1 (18-ounce) jar marinara sauce, no sugar added
Mix together all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Shape meat into balls just slightly smaller than a golf ball, and place in bottom of slow cooker (no liquid, no oil). They should all fit snuggly in a single layer in a 5-quart slow cooker. But if you have a smaller cooker, then simply layer the meatballs between sheets of parchment paper, cut to fit your insert. Cook on LOW for 4 hours, or until internal temperature of the meat reaches at least 165°.
This data will change based on bread and sauce used. Sodium can be lowered with low-sodium marinara.
