Spotlight Recipe: Venison Curry Meatballs in Sun-Dried Tomato Phyllo Cups

These cocktail-sized meatball appetizers are created from venison (deer-meat), a low calorie and very low fat meat. This recipe combines light and flaky phyllo filled with mildly-flavored meat and topped with tangy mango chutney. Instead of the recommended 2 per person portion, create larger meatballs and to serve over whole wheat spaghetti.

These cocktail-sized appetizers feature an unusual protein: venison (that's deer meat). You'll probably need to look harder for it at your local butcher, but venison is worth the 44 calories and 2 grams of fat per ounce (compared to 54 calories and 4 grams of fat for the same amount of ground beef). If you don't want to try them appetizer-style in phyllo cups, make larger meatballs and serve them over whole-wheat spaghetti.
