Turkey Meatballs

This is a perfect make-ahead meal: You can put the meatballs in sandwiches, pair them with pasta, place them on a bed of greens or veggies, or eat them one at a time as midday snacks.

Turkey Meatballs
Servings: 6 Prep 10 mins Cook 15 mins Start to Finish 25 mins


  • 1 pound ground turkey (any fat percentages is fine; I've gone as low as 94% lean turkey with really great results.)
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (no need to use the expensive stuff here, but don't skip; it adds great flavor)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons no-salt Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray-covered foil.

3. Combine turkey, breadcrumbs, cheese, egg, Italian seasoning, and kosher salt in a large bowl.

4. Using a tablespoon to scoop, gently shape mixture into approximately 30 meatballs.

5. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, shaking pan every 5 minutes for even browning.
