Turkey Meatballs

I cooked turkey meatballs the other day. I just baked it and I put the leftovers in the refrigerator. My hubby and I ate it again the next day and it saved me time in cooking. I just wish I will just eat and not have to cook. That was my life way back in the Philippines. How I miss it!

Anyway, here's the recipe for this turkey meatballs. These oven-baked meatballs are fast and easy to prepare. You can serve them with pasta and spaghetti sauce or just eat them with ketchup. Feel free to substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey. The turkey should have at least 7% fat."


* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 (20 ounce) package ground turkey
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
* 1 onion


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with the olive oil, and place it in the oven while preheating.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground turkey, egg, and bread crumbs using your hands. Using an ice cream scoop if possible, form the meat into golf ball sized meatballs. Place about 1 inch apart in the hot baking dish. Press down to flatten the bottom just slightly.
3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn them over, and continue baking for about 5 more minutes, or until somewhat crispy on the outside. Serve with pasta and sauce or however you'd like.
