Recipe: Turkey Meatballs
Mom had seen GF bread crumbs in the grocery store and got the idea to make meatballs for our spaghetti. We adapted this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens- Cooking for Two book. Since regular meatballs can be a little fatting we decided to use ground turkey. They turned out wonderful! Sometime its fun to spice up your cooking.
2 pounds of ground turkey
1.5 cups of GF bread crumbs (we used kinnikinnick gluten free bread crumbs)
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1.5 teaspoons of salt
2 tablespoons of italian seasoning
**We separated the batch into two before adding the italian seasoning so we could do BBQ turkey meatball sandwiches.
Preheat the oven for 375 degrees. Combined all ingredients in a mixing bowl. It’s best to use your hands to really make sure everything gets mixed in well. Scoop out a 1-2 inch ball and roll into a meatball. Place on a baking sheet. You will have between 2-4 dozen depending on how big you make them. Cook in the oven for between 25-30 minutes. You want them to be brown and cooked through the middle. You can always check them by taking one out of the oven and cutting it in half.
With the spaghetti we had them soak in the sauce for about 20-30 minutes. This made them saucy and moist!
