This recipe does NOT comply with the South beach diet phase 1. Cereal is not allowed and Bran is still cereal, esp a half a cup.

winner, winner, meatball dinner! I made a few changes: half ground turkey and half lean ground pork, soy granules (unflavored tvp) instead of the bran cereal and a real egg—because that's what I had on hand and wanted to try the method/recipe, pronto. thank you!

These are fantastic! I made them yesterday for our football party, and served them with sweet chilli sauce. I should have made a double mix, as they just disappeared! Will b making these again! [Made for Fall 2008 PAC]
