These are soft,flavorful cheesy meatballs.
- 1 lb ground turkey (or 1/2 lb ground italian pork sausage,and 1/2 lb ground sirloin)
- 2 teaspoons dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 3⁄4 cup of white unseasoned breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- Mix everything together, and form into golf ball size meatballs, or smaller if thats to your liking. Slowly drop meatballs into my old world Italian spaghetti sauce recipe #139406 when it reaches a slow simmer (about 1/2 hour into cooking time) Be sure to stir slowly and often so meatballs don't stick and crumble in the pot.
These are excellent! I'm not a big fan of ground turkey, but I wanted to give these a try. I doubled the recipe and I used milk instead of water. I baked them in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes and they turned out perfectly. I made meatball sandwiches the first night, and then spaghetti with meatballs the second night with marinara sauce. These were a big hit. I will be making these again! Thanks for the great recipe!
This recipe is outstanding! I have an awful time trying to make ground turkey tasty. This recipe is so flavorful, that if I hadn't made them myself, I wouldn't believe they're made from turkey! I followed the recipe except that I used Italian seasoning in place of the basil & oregano. I did use the water called for and the breadcrumbs soaked it right up, so there was no probelm with them being too wet to handle. I made 12 meatballs and baked them on a non-stick rack on a cookie sheet for about 45 minutes. I'm going to freeze them and just take them out when needed. I'm just thrilled to have found this recipe!
These were tender, moist and bursting with flavor. It really elevated the ground turkey to a whole new level. My whole family enjoyed these, including my 2 and 3 year old sons. I baked them at 350 for 25 minutes like another reviewer did and they turned out perfectly as well. I then added them to my marinara sauce and cooked for a couple more minutes. DELICIOUS!
