Turkey Meatballs

Hi friends– Larry is doing to the dishes (just one of the reasons I love that guy), so I can sit and write up this yummy Turkey Meatball recipe for you.  These little cuties are tender and savory– really quite delicious.  We had them over pasta tonight with a simple sauce of small cut tomatoes, onion, garlic…  But I was thinking they would make super meatball sandwiches together with some grilled peppers and onions.  Next time.

1 pound ground turkey
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup bread crumbs
dash pepper
1/3 cup roasted red peppers, finely chopped
1/4 cup onion, minced

Mix all these ingredients well.  Scoop out by small spoonfulls and shape them into cute little meatballs.  Set them out on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake them up at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes (depends on how well done you like them).  Serve them up with your favorite pasta sauce over your favorite pasta and dig in!

  1. Thanks! I have made this tasty dish, using chicken mince meat because we can’t get turkey eround here! 🙂

    I think it is a lovely method, to bake your meat balls in the oven. You must use less oil & they were ready after 30 minutes! So good, so tasty too. I got 34 medium sized smaller meat balls & added another 1/2 teaspoon of dried Provencal herbs, for extra flavour & a bit more black pepper too! The parmesan cheese melts in your pouth when just bakled into the oven! MMM!This was a really festive meal! My hubby Peter & I loved it so much! The meat balls were so tasty too, cold, the next day!
