I make these often they are lower in fat and very good, I sometimes use The Best Creole/Cajun Seasoning Mix in place of the seasoned salt but the choice is yours to use whatever you wish --- yield is only estimated depending on the size of your meatball -- also see my Kittencal's Italian Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meatballs
- 1 lb ground turkey (use white and dark meat)
- 1⁄4 cup fat-free evaporated milk (can use low-fat milk or fat-free milk)

Thanks for this recipe. I think these meatballs may be the secret ingredient in the best spaghetti sauce I've ever made! I used skim milk and baked them for 30 minutes at 375 degrees, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Added them to my own spaghetti sauce and let it simmer for 20 minutes--wow, YUM!
These are the best turkey meatballs I have ever had! I just got done gobbling them up and had to come on and review them right away. First of all, I used all turkey breast, and made 16 large meatballs. They came to 1 WW point each. I baked these at 375 for 30 minutes and then threw them in my sauce for 5 minutes just to let them soak it up. A couple tips: I used dry parsley and skim milk. Also, I used fresh garlic but I think I would do garlic powder next time, just because the garlic pieces are a bit much to bite in to with the mild flavor of the turkey. Also, if you bake these, don't forget the nonstick spray! Mine got stuck, but still turned out so delicious. These are incredibly moist and wonderful! Thanks, Kittencal!
It's a very good meatball. I've also made them using ground chicken. Sometimes I will make them smaller and put them in chicken soup. <br/><br/>Another home run from Kittencal.
