“These oven-baked meatballs are fast and easy to prepare and very kid-friendly. You can serve them with pasta and spaghetti sauce or just eat them with ketchup, as my children do. Feel free to substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey. The turkey should have at least 7% fat.”

Ingredients

Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 18 meatballs

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with the olive oil, and place it in the oven while preheating.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground turkey, egg, and bread crumbs using your hands. Using an ice cream scoop if possible, form the meat into golf ball sized meatballs. Place about 1 inch apart in the hot baking dish. Press down to flatten the bottom just slightly.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn them over, and continue baking for about 5 more minutes, or until somewhat crispy on the outside. Serve with pasta and sauce or however you'd like.

My daughter sent me this recipe. She loved it so much. I added 1/2 tsp. sage, 2 Tbsp. of grated parmesan, onion power, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Also, I added about 1/8 cup of water. It made the meatballs soooo delicious. This is a keeper for me for sure!

Maybe I should have been more specific about the fat content of the turkey (see the previous review) but 99% fat free turkey does not work (I also tried to use it). The meat should have at least 7% fat.

Absolutely delicious! I did make a couple of additions/changes - I used meatloaf mix (beef/pork/veal), and added 2 TBSP of parmesan cheese and 2 tsp crushed garlic for extra flavor. Baked them according to the recipe then put them in a pot of sauce to simmer for a couple hours. They were fantastic! Definitely a keeper!
