This recipe is great because it uses leftover mashed potatoes. I love using meatballs as a way of getting more veggies into my kids. They don't even know they're in there. If you don't have mashed potatoes you can boil a small potato and just mash it with a fork. Let it cool before adding it to the mix. I also put all the vegetables into the Magic Bullet because it was faster.
1/2lb ground chicken
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce or ketchup
1/8 cup finely minced onion
1/8 cup finely minced red pepper
1/8 cup finely minced button mushrooms
1/8 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup cold mashed potatoes (with butter, milk, etc. is okay.)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking dish with foil and spray with some cooking spray.
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients with your hand until well mixed.
Divide the mix into 12 portions and roll into balls. Mine were larger than golf balls. You can make them any size you want just be sure to adjust the cooking time.
Place in the baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes or until no longer pink inside.
