Recipe Ingredients for Crispy Turkey Nuggets [gluten free]

1 egg white
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cups nuts or seeds
1/2 c flax meal
2 lbs of ground turkey
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder
1 t rosemary
1 t oregano
1 t salt

Recipe Directions for Crispy Turkey Nuggets [gluten free]

  1. spices for nugget crust [whatever you like] you can go chili and spice, or oregano and rosemary, depends on your taste.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Separate egg white from yolk, add 1/2 cup of broth to egg white and beat it up a little till you see some bubbles.

  3. In a separate container mix your flax seed/meal into your mixed nuts meal add some finely chopped rosemary and oregano to your mixed nuts with a pinch of salt and stir.

  4. Mix your onion powder and garlic powder into turkey meat.

  5. Use a wire rack to bake the nuggets, this way you don?t have to bother with flipping them and they will cook on both sides at the same time. Place a cookie sheet under the rack, the nuggets will drip. If your rack isn?t nonstick spray/brush some oil on it.

  6. Form nugget sized portions, about 1 1/2 T's. Use two forks to flip the nugget in the egg white mix, and use the fork to place the nugget in the spicy nut crust mix. I prefer to flip the nugget in the bowl without using my fingers. Place on rack.

  7. Lower oven to 350. After 15 minutes turn your tray around so both ends get the same amount of heat. I don?t know about you but the back of my oven is much hotter than the front. Check the nuggets after another 10-20 minutes. The longer you leave them in the crispier they will be. Depending upon the size of your nuggets will change the time it takes to cook, small ones will burn sooner than larger ones.

  8. The recipe here is so tasty you won?t need any sauce.

  9. But if you want a healthy alternative to the diabetes treats/sauce packets they give you in the drive thru you can try this:

  10. few tablespoons of course ground mustard

  11. a tablespoon of honey

  12. These are great the next day but they won?t be crispy straight out of the fridge. If you want to crisp them again you?ll have to bake them again.
