Family Approved Turkey Meatballs

by | Dips ‘n Nibbles, Entrees, Recipes | 0 comments


  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs (or GF substitute)
  • 1/4 cup milk (or non-dairy substitute – unflavored)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey (I use dark meat. It holds together better)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper


  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place breadcrumbs in milk in a small bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet.
  5. Add onion and cook 5 – 6 min. stirring frequently.
  6. Add garlic, cook another minute, stirring frequently.
  7. In a large bowl, combine onion mixture, turkey, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, and breadcrumbs. Mix well (Using your hands works best).
  8. With damp hands, form turkey mixture into approximately 42 one-inch meatballs. Arrange on a baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 13 – 18 minutes or until browned and cooked through.
  10. I like to put them in my crockpot with a homemade sauce or a store-bought sauce, like Rao’s Homemade. I found it at Costco. It has 8 recognizable, pronounceable ingredients and no added sugar!

These meatballs freeze well!
