Italian Turkey Meatballs!
My house is covered in meatballs!!! It’s amazing how many you can make with a pound of ground turkey. Good thing these meatballs are so dang tasty! 😉
Dj really loved these too… when asking him what I should call them he suggested, “uhh.. ‘Really Good Meatballs’?”
I’m really picky when eating out, and generally stray away from bulky meats, such as meatloaf or meatballs. I just want to make sure there are no gross fillers, so making my own seems like the solution to my problem. 🙂
*1 pound ground turkey (or chicken or beef) *1 egg *1 cup whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs *1 cup chopped onion *7 Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning* 2 Tablespoons black pepper *
Simply mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl!
Don’t be afraid to use your hands! It works best that way. Warning: this may get a little messy.. 🙂
Form the meatballs into your choice of dimensions. I did them pretty big because I like to have mostly protein in my meals.
Remember to grease your pan!
I made 24 meatballs. Which is perfect, because I’ll be eating on them all week!
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-ish minutes. After 20 minutes, slice one half way open to ensure that they are done. The outsides will be golden and crunchy. Yummm
I was craving Italian, so I made some gluten-free pasta to go along with the meatballs.
