Turkey Meatballs anyone!!

This is one of my family's favorites, and since I made these on the eve of our 4th of July celebration, I wanted to make something different that wasn't grilled, BBQ, or picnic style food....This also re-heats well, and is great for "leftover" night, which we try and do once a week. Waste-not, want-not!

Turkey Meatballs

2 lbs. of ground turkey
1 egg
1 cup breadcrumbs
3-4 large cloves garlic chopped
¼ cup chopped Italian parsley
1 medium yellow onion chopped
1/8 cup chopped fresh oregano
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
Natures Seasoning
2 tablespoons worschteshire sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Mix together all ingredients. Form into balls about the size of a plum. Fry meatballs in olive oil till all sides are browned. Add to sauce, and continue to cook for an additional hour.


  1. These look so flavorful, people would never know that they were made with turkey. I like tasty meatballs that do not take hours, so I have saved this to make sometime in the future. Thanks for posting this!

  2. these look delish! Will be trying it out soon :)
