Ingredients

  • 1 lbs ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp dried basil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, soak breadcrumbs in milk until they are soggy.
  • Add other ingredients except for the ground turkey and mix well.
  • Add ground turkey and mix with your hand. Make sure not to overwork the meat.
  • Use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out the meat mixture and form small balls. Place the balls on a cookie sheet.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the meatballs in one layer and cook, turning until browned all sides, about 6-8 minutes.
  • (Optional) Add tomato sauce and simmer until the sauce has thickened and coat nicely onto the meatballs.
  • Serve with spaghetti and enjoy!

Notes

  1. If you’d like to bake them in the oven, set the temperature at 350°F and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  2. These Turkey meatballs are great for meal prep and freeze well. So you can easily double the recipe.
