    Default would anyone calculate pts for swedish meatballs?

    Hi Everyone! I found a recipe for swedish meatballs on the recipe boards, and have modified it even more in an attempt to make it more point friendly. Could someone please calculate the points for me? I would like to know the points for 8 servings and also 6 servings. Thanks a bunch!

    Swedish Meatballs

    2 lbs ground turkey
    1 egg
    1/4 cup dehydrated onion
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp pepper
    1 Tbs I can't believe it's not butter
    1 Tbs low sodium fat free beef broth
    2 cups low sodium fat free beef broth
    1/3 cup fat free sourcream
    4 tsp worcheshire sauce
    1/4 cup flour
    4 slices pepperidge farm light style wheat bread (1 slice = 45 cal, 0.5 g fat, 1g fiber)
    1 1/2 cups water

    1. cut the bread into little pieces and soak in the water for 2 min.
    2. mix together egg, salt, pepper, and onion, then mix into the bread
    3. add ground turkey to the mix and incorporate completely.
    4. in a skillet melt I can't belive it's not butter with 1 tbs broth.
    5. use a Tablespoon to measure out meatballs and cook in the skillet, turning until brown (about 3-4 min)
    6. layer meatballs on a cookie sheet, and cook in 400 degree oven about 15-20 min, until cooked
    7. while meatballs are baking, mix remaining broth with flour and whisk, then add to pan and mix with the drippings until thick (about 4 min)
    8. take skillet off heat and add worcheshire sauce and ff sour cream to the sauce and mix.
    9. place meatballs in the sauce and cook over low heat about 5 minutes, just until everything is incorporated nicely.

    These were delicious, and I'm sure they are lower in points than the original recipe which called for ground beef.

    Are you using just regular ground turkey or the ground turkey breast. There's a big difference in points as the regular can contain dark meat and skin and has a much higher fat content.

    It is just regular purdue ground turkey. It is not just breast meat. I tried to do a search for the nutritional information, and couldn't find it.

    I put it into fitday with regular ground turkey. Their calories seemed to match with what I found for perdue ground turkey at www.calorieking.com

    I didn't have the NI for ICBINB but since it's just 1 tbs for the whole recipe I don't think it would change the points per serving.
    And I didnt have NI for FF sour cream so I used imitation whatever that is. Again I don't think with the minimal amount in the recipe it would impact the points per serving.
