The most tender turkey meatballs you'll ever have, with a crisp exterior! Perfect for snacking on their own, meal prep, or in sauces!
Servings: 25 meatballs
- 1 lb ground turkey 93%
- ¼ cup of your favorite tomato-based pasta sauce
- 1 egg large
- ½ cup breadcrumbs seasoned or unseasoned
- 2 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley packed
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon oregano dried
In a large bowl, gently mix all ingredients with a fork or spatula until combined. Don't use a mixer or other high powered device as overmixing can make for tough meatballs.
Gently shape the turkey mixture into 1" balls. You should get about 25 balls.
How to Make Meatballs in the Oven
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake on a greased sheet pan for 15 - 18 minutes, or until the balls are cooked through and have started to brown.For extra color, broil the balls for 1 - 2 minutes on high after cooking.
How To Pan Fry Meatballs
In a hot heavy duty skillet or frying pan set over medium heat, pour 1 Tablespoon of oil. Working in batches of 8 - 10 ( depending on how many meatballs can fit in your skillet without touching each other ), fry the balls for 2 minutes on each "side".I consider a meatball to have four sides - a top and a bottom, and once those are cooked, a left and right side. It's like cooking a little cube.
