    • No-stick cooking spray
    • 1 pound ground turkey
    • 2/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
    • 1 large egg
    • 3 tablespoons grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
    • 2 teaspoons Dried Plum Puree
    • 1½ teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Heat oven to 350°F.
Lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

In large bowl combine all ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly.

Form mixture into 20 (1½-inch) meatballs. (For best flavor and appearance, form and cook meatballs immediately after mixing meat mixture.)

Place meatballs on baking sheet; bake 18 to 22 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color.

Serve as a main dish with your favorite pasta sauce and spaghetti or as an appetizer with Cajun Dried Plum Barbecue Sauce for dipping.
