Turkey Frikadellen

Posted in HCG, Recipes at 9:36 pm by Dr Michelle Torrance ND, LAc

My mom used to make Frikadellen when I was a kid – they are German equivalent of meat-loaf, but in individual portions. Way more fun to eat that way!

The “normal” way to cook these is in the pan with oil – but as we know, that isn’t the lowest fat option available. Instead, you’re going to get these together and bake them. The oil that runs off in the pan can be put into food compost or added as a nice treat to your dog’s bowl!

  • 1 lb ground turkey, the leanest you can find
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 can diced, low sodium tomatoes – or you can chop up a fresh one
  • 2 egg whites (If you can eat them. If not, just leave them out.)
  • Pepper, salt and other spices to taste (I like marjoram and parsley; or cumin and coriander; or garlic salt; or…)

Mix it up, divide it into 8 balls, flatten them and put them on a cookie sheet covered with foil, shiny side up.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 325-340 degrees.

Now you have enough for 4 meals, two Frikadellen each!
