Ground Turkey Meatball Recipe
- 1 pound ground turkey
- ½ low-fat milk
- 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- ½ onion, finely chopped
- ¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp parmesan or romano cheese
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp salt
- black and red pepper to taste
Combine the breadcrumbs with milk and beaten egg and blend thoroughly.
Add ground turkey and remaining ingredients.
Using your hands or a meatball scoop, form the meatball mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter. If the mixture is too dry to form balls, add more milk or water.
Saute the meatballs in batches using no more than ⅛ inch of oil. Fry them until they are brown and slightly crisp, about 8 minutes. Place the cooked meatballs on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. This recipe yields about 4-5 servings.
If you want to cut calories, you can bake these meatballs in the oven at 400°F for about 20 minutes or until they are no longer pink in the middle.
