Oh My!… Italian Turkey Meatballs

When they arrived, we spent a few minutes visiting, and then, as usual, my brother made the announcement that he was “starving.” Sometimes he reminds me of a little kid. He has been the same way his whole life. When I served up the meatballs, he looked at me with a bit of panic in his face. I told everyone what they were made of, and I think I heard him exhale the breath he was holding in. Everyone really enjoyed these served with my homemade spaghetti sauce and pasta.

Let someone else plan your dinner for a change. This is a good one!



1 pound ground turkey

1/2 cup Italian-style bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated Kraft Parmesan cheese

1 Eggland’s Best egg

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)




Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Mix turkey, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, egg, parsley, and salt together in a large bowl. Form meat mixture with wet hands into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter without handling or packing too hard.

Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes . An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).






Quick Tip: Ground beef works in here just fine if you don’t want to try the turkey.
