"Quick, easy light flavor. I enjoy these with a green salad. Lite cooking so great for the waistline"

Servings Per Recipe: 6
"PERFECT! This recipe was great. I did 350 for 30 min. as suggested and they came out just right. Tender, juicy, and the perfect color. Seasoning in this is clean and crisp. And best of all I have everything on hand, no going to the grocery store. This will definately become a family staple for us. And BTW it's pretty healthy!"
"Yummy! And my 4 year old actually ATE MORE than her 6 year old brother!!! Used Italian breadcrumbs in lieu of parsley and oregano. I was short on time, so I pan fried to brown them, then baked for 10-15 minutes on 350. Served with buttered egg noodles sprinkled with garlic salt. Quick and easy! Thanks!
p.s. My husband thinks the recipe would also convert well to turkey burgers!"
"Even after all the great reviews I was still surprised at how good these are! I did baked them like many suggested. To try to keep the calories low and the nutrition high. I combined 1 oz (per serving) whole wheat pasta with a cup of raw grated zucchini 4 meatballs and jarred spaghetti sauce. DELISH and very substantial!"
"Tender! I baked them in the oven and made open faced meatball sandwiches with mozzarella cheese on top. I deleted the salt and added fresh basil. These had a lot of flavor which is important when someone is on a low sodium diet. I've added these to our favorite recipe file so I'll be making them again."
"I really expected not to like these, but I am on a diet that calls for ground turkey so decided to try them. I omitted the bread crumbs, but these were still very good. I baked them, rather than fried and they held together very well. I will definitely be making these again. Thanks Bergy."
"My entire family loved this recipe (including the 6 year old and the 2 1/2 year old). I followed all the instructions in the recipe and then baked them at 350 for 1/2 hour. They were terrific! I thought about putting them in the sauce for a while but decided against it as they were terrific on their own. I served the whole wheat pasta and pasta sauce separately. I will definitely make these again. I might try making turkeyburgers with the mixture it was so good."
"Loved it! Browned them on the outside and then stuck in the oven (10-15 mins at 350) while I got the sauce and pasta ready. Even my somewhat picky bf liked them and had seconds!"
"Great meatballs, but would probably put less garlic and oregano when I make next time. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!"
"Exactly what I was looking for. I do not like spongey meatballs. This was not spongey at all. Perfect texture, flavor, etc... Used all organic ingredients. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is a fabulous recipe. Circumstances forced us to make a few changes though. We used Italian bread crumbs instead of regular and since our oven is broken we fried the meatballs in some oil on the stove. Also, though the recipe calls for both garlic and salt, which I added, I also added just a little bit of garlic salt as well. These are amazing. Will make again and will share with others"
"These were delish! They were much lighter than traditional meatballs that usually have a heavy, dense texture. I did dub dried parsley and baked them at 350* for 30 minutes so I could focus on getting the pasta & garlic bread ready while the sauce finished simmering. Once they were done in the oven, I let them simmer in my sauce for about 10-15 minutes. YUM!"
"This is a GREAT recipe AND soooo easy. I add crushed red pepper to give it a little zing. My kids are really picky about mixing meat with pasta, but they loved this!!"
"Hey Bergy, I only got 29 meatballs, one short!! haha! just kidding they are really delicious ! I used roasted garlic in them, made for a lovely flavour! they stayed together beautifully. I also cooked them in the oven on a rack, 400f degrees for 25 minutes; turned out almost crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. We ate half for supper and I froze the other half for a busy night. I will try them next time with a sauce but we did enjoy them without. Thanks for posting, I will be making them again."
"This a very quick and tasty recipe. Forvall those"
"Yum city! Was fired up to do turkey & realized I had to use up my ground beef - and they were delish! I chopped up fresh basil instead of parsley - and stove top method was great as we were short on time. Definitely making this dish again - can't wait to try turkey!"
"These were terrific! I had all of the ingredients in the house, and the meatballs were so easy to make and taste delicious. I took the suggestion to bake them at 350 for 30 minutes. We used them to make meatball subs, tonight, and we'll use the leftovers for spaghetti and meatballs, later in the week."
"I made these to go in a tomato sauce and my family couldn't tell the difference from our usual full fat meatball. I will use this often, its flavorful and lite. thank you for sharing with us this tasty little gem."
"I was craving meatballs but wanted to use a healthier alternative rather than beef. Most of the other ground turkey recipes I've tried came out pretty dry so I was hesitant. However, these meatballs were super moist and delicious! Even my boyfriend couldn't believe how much he enjoyed them (he's very pessimistic when it comes to ground turkey, lol). Like some other reviewers, I chose to bake these at 350 degrees for 30 minutes on parchment paper. This recipe was featured in my blog - http://danasfoodblog.com/?p=629."
"Delicious! I used them to make meatball sandwiches on Orowheat whole grain buns topped with meatless spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese."
"I made this recipe on 2/19/13,As I was mixing everything together,I couldn't really smell all the seasonings but resisted the urge to add anything else. After chilling for a couple of hours,all the seasonings seemed to meld together and smelled delightful. And I know the turkey balls were made " WAY " too big,because all I was able to get was 24. I baked them at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.They turned out incredibly moist and had a very nice flavor. " Keep Smiling :) ""
