Turkey Meatball Stroganoff Recipe
I’m really into meatballs right now! Meatballs are portable, and you can easily increase or decrease your portion sizes since they’re measured while rolling them. You can work with so many different flavors with meatballs as your protein and use any kind of ground meat to reach your calorie goals. After you try this Turkey Meatball Stroganoff Recipe try my Turkey Shiitake Meatball lettuce wraps or this awesome Cooking Light recipe for Turkey Meatball Reuben Subs.
Ground Turkey has been a staple protein in my diet for a few months to keep the calories down. 1200 calories a day means having to get crafty to make the calories go further. So Turkey Meatball Stroganoff it is! I freaking LOVE stroganoff! I like to make it with beef strips but I can’t afford the calories so turkey meatballs are the best bet.
The meatballs are seasoned like Swedish meatballs. I used a little raspberry jam, allspice, and parsley to flavor the turkey meatballs. The creamy mushroom gravy has been tweaked to make it lower calorie using light cream cheese and light sour cream. They’re so delicious and could easily be served with any kind of side dish, not just noodles as I’ve shown here. Try it with sweet potato mash, roasted baby potatoes or steamed broccoli and carrots. YUM!
Ryan needs a higher calorie count on his meals while he is doing the Great Cycle Challenge so his meals are different than mine. I made his meatballs with pork instead of turkey and he doesn’t like mushrooms so for the gravy I subbed them out for a large sweet onion sliced thin. For 735 calories he gets 5 pork meatballs, 2 cups of egg noodles and about 1/4 cup of onion gravy. For 355 calories, I get 4 turkey meatballs, 1 cup of egg noodles, and 1/4 cup of mushroom gravy.
