Turkey Meatballs

Turkey Meatballs

Delicious Turkey Meatballs! Ground turkey is mixed with breadcrumbs, flavorful onion, garlic, parmesan cheese and herbs, then formed into bite size rounds and oven baked. These are a tender, even juicy meatball that’s brimming with flavor. And they are very easy to make and only take about 15 minutes to bake. Since they are made of leaner ground turkey they are a healthier alternative to the fattier ground beef or pork based meatballs, yet they are still incredibly delicious!

Perfect for those days when you’re craving a comforting and cozy Italian meal! To keep that healthier options going you can serve atop baked spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles for a tempting meal you can feel great about eating.

You may substitute ground chicken in place of ground turkey. You can also use Panko in place of standard bread crumbs. Use a scant 1/2 cup. Make smaller or larger depending on desired size preferred, just keep even and cook through to center. Use Pecorino Romano cheese in place of parmesan cheese. Try with all parsley and skip the basil (use 4 tbsp).

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs, homemade or store-bought
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup (1.2 oz) finely shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for serving if desired
  • 1/4 cup very finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 lb. 93% lean ground turkey, very cold, I recommend Jennie-O since it's less wet and sticky
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 (24 oz) jar marinara sauce (I recommend Rao's Tomato Basil)
