I buy ground turkey by the case at our warehouse club. Whenever I pick one up I make 5 lbs. of these meatballs, scaling back the worcestershire sauce a bit to make them a little more all-purpose. I use a cookie scoop to portion out single tablespoon meatballs and bake them at 350 for 20 minutes. Then I use them in spaghetti, subs, swedish meatballs, chili&jelly sauce...
My hubby doesn't eat beef so I made these with ground turkey, and since I'm on low carb I used crushed pork rinds instead of the saltine crackers. They were delicious! I've now made them twice in less than a week. The first batch I cooked in the skillet as directed, which was kind of time consuming. The 2nd batch I decided to cut down the work time so I baked them at 400F for about 40 mins. to make sure the turkey was cooked all the way through. Slightly better texturally cooked in the skillet, but truly outstanding either way. Hubby loved them too, although he didn't quite inhale them. :-) I will definitely make these again and again, tripling the recipe (as I did the 2nd time), and freezing them for light lunches and snacks. Thanks!
These are yummy!! I made them with a few changes: I used 1/2 c. Italian seasoned bread crumbs instead of the crackers; I added 1 egg; and I added 1/4 c. fresh grated parmesan cheese. Also, I put them on a greased baking sheet and baked them in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 min. These made wonderful meatball sandwiches. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is definitely a keeper!!

<p>I live in TN with a husband, 9 year old, 6 year old, and our two dogs. I'm a busy mom who loves to cook for family and friends. We have two boys, and they are the light of my life! My husband is a restaurant manager. We actually met while working together at Bob Evans in another city. He was one cute grill cook!! Now he is one cute manager, and I am so proud of him! He currently works for El Chico, and he is very happy there. <br />I am a stay at home mom who sometimes does temp work, which is a big change from corporate America. We'll see how that goes. Now that I have some more time, I plan to get back to the kind of cooking I used to do. You know...with pots and pans instead of a take out menu. I love to crochet, garden and hike with the family. Thanks in advance for any reviews you do of my recipes. :)</p>
