Turkey Meatball Stroganoff

This is a quick and delicious meal.  To save time, use pre-made meatballs heated in the microwave.  Costco has some delicious chicken and pineapple meatballs which would work great.


1 package egg noodles
1 large egg
2 tbsp. Red Currant Jelly
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
Kosher salt and pepper
1 clove garlic
¼ c. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
¼ c. bread crumbs
1 lb. ground turkey
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 package cremini mushrooms
¾ c. dry white wine
⅓ c. lowfat sour cream
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard


Heat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil. Cook the noodles according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the egg, jelly, allspice, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Stir in the garlic and parsley, then the bread crumbs. Let sit for 2 minutes. Add the turkey and mix to combine.

Form the turkey mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls (about 20 total) and place on the prepared baking sheet. Broil until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden brown and tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the wine and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and mustard. Toss with the meatballs and additional parsley, if desired, and serve over the noodles.
