Turkey Meatballs

Turkey Meatballs

Love meatballs, but trying to cut back on red meat? Try our light and tasty turkey meatballs. They make a great party app, or try them atop your favorite pasta or zoodles. 

Ingredients

1 pound ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
½ cup grated carrot
½ cup grated zucchini
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup grated parmesan cheese*
½ cup dry bread crumbs
*If dairy free, omit parmesan cheese or substitute with dairy-free alternative. Parmesan is naturally low in lactose, so this recipe should be well-tolerated for those with lactose intolerance.

Instructions

Preheat an oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine egg, carrot, zucchini, salt, basil, oregano, and garlic powder. Add the turkey and Parmesan cheese. Mix until evenly blended.
Shape mixture into 16 golf ball sized meatballs. Roll in bread crumbs. Place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until the turkey is no longer pink on the inside and the meatballs are golden brown. About 50 min.
