Turkey Meatballs with Creamy Sauce

Still sticking to the Weight Watchers diet and still enjoying it! They have a great number of healthy and low pointed recipes to choose from I think I have only cooked a dish a second time on a couple of recipes. This is one of them a real winner with hubby as well. Modified this recipe to suit our likes.

Spicy Turkey Meatballs with Creamy Cauliflower & Potato
Serves 4. 8 Pro Points per serving

400g New potatoes, halved
1 medium cauliflower broken into small florets
280g Turkey mince
1 Red chilli, deseeded and chopped fine
3 medium spring onions, chopped very fine
3tlbs creme fraiche, half fat
40g Parmesan, fine grate
40g Gruyere, grated
2 tsp Dijon Mustard - Optional
1/4tsp Cayenne Pepper
Cornflour mixed with a little water

Simmer potatoes in water until tender. Cook the cauliflower until al dente, drain and retain the water.
Combine the minced turkey with the chilli, spring onions and Cayenne, S&P. Form into 16-20 small balls. Heat a non-stick frying pan and cook them over a medium heat, turning often for about 15 minutes.
Take the potatoes, cauli and meatballs and place in a shallow dish.
Take 75ml of the cauli water in a saucepan and add the creme fraiche, simmer and whisk until slightly thickened, add the Gruyere and half of the Parmesan and melt in, add the cornflour and mustard and whisk over low heat until thickened.
Pour over the dish, top with remained of the Parmesan and season with more cayenne or pepper.
Place under a hot grill for a few mins, until melted and golden.

A really hearty dish and fun to make.
