Turkey Meatballs

My first time cooking turkey! When I told Jared what I was making he had his doubts, but he ended up loving it! Definitely a repeat recipe!

This recipe makes 15 meatballs. They will take about 15-20 minutes to cook.

1 package (1.25lb) of ground Turkey(for this recipe you will only use half the package)
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
3 cloves of minced garlic
3 TBS chopped Parsley (Fresh or dried)
1 TBS Onion powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 of a beaten egg (Doesn't have to be exact just not the whole egg!)

For this recipe I only use half the package of ground turkey and then freeze the rest for later.

So, take your half the package of turkey (10 oz) and mix in all the ingredients.

Get a nonstick pan on the burner on medium heat and drizzle in some olive oil. Take a tablespoon measuring cup and use that to form your meatballs. Scoop a meatball and then you might have to shape it a little more if your measuring spoons aren't round.

Once they are all rolled out add them into your pan.

Let them cook until they are brown on the bottom and then flip. I have a hard time flipping them at first since they hadn't cook through and weren't stiff, so I suggest using a fork and spoon to help just roll them over, and then you can use tongs once they are stiff.

The total cooking time is about 15-20 minutes. Take the largest meatball out and cut it in half to check and make sure they are done.

And there you have it! Easy Turkey Meatballs! I would post my spaghetti sauce recipe but it's still not quite up to par yet. Hope you all try this out!
