Juicy Turkey Meatballs in Tomato Basil Sauce with Burrata

Juicy Turkey Meatballs in Tomato Basil Sauce with Burrata

Healthy turkey meatballs simmered in a delicious, homemade spicy tomato basil sauce with creamy burrata cheese. These one pan homemade juicy turkey meatballs in sauce are savory, spicy, creamy and make a delicious weeknight dinner with your favorite pasta or even spaghetti squash!

I love making homemade meatballs using ground turkey rather than beef for a slightly leaner source of protein. One serving of these healthy turkey meatballs packs over 20g of protein! You can also use ground chicken if you’d like, or stick with beef if that’s your jam.This easy turkey meatball recipe can be made without breadcrumbs to keep it gluten free, grain free & paleo. Simply use 2-3 tablespoons of coconut flour in place of the breadcrumbs. I recommend starting with 2 tablespoons to see if your meatballs hold together well and if you can easily shape them into balls.


For the meatballs:

1 pound 93% lean ground turkey

1 egg

1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs (or if GF sub 2-3 tablespoons coconut flour)

2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely minced

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon italian seasoning (or sub dried oregano)

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

For the sauce:

1 (24 ounce) jar your favorite pasta sauce (we love tomato basil)

4-6 large basil leaves, julienned

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, plus more if you like it really spicy!

4-6 ounces Burrata cheese (or sub fresh mozzarella), cut into large pieces
