Turkey and sweet potato meatballs

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 c. sweet potato, baked and mashed (~3 small)

Wash, dry, and prick holes in the sweet potato; bake at 375 degrees for about 40 min.  When soft, peel and mash.  Chop onion, garlic, parsley in the food processor.  Add the breadcrumbs and cheese, process some more.  Mix with the raw turkey meat in a large bowl, drizzle with maple syrup and add salt and pepper.  Careful not to overmix.  Bake in 400 degree oven for ~30 min. in two greased 9×13 baking dishes.
