Baked "Turkey Meatballs"

Baked "Turkey Meatballs"
Some were placed in the Tomato Sauce
Others were frozen
For the past year we've been eating less beef.  Really!  As a matter of fact it's not found very often on our grocery list.  In the warmer months, occasionally, we enjoy a yummy grilled cheeseburger.  But that's a treat on a HHH summer day.  I've been using lean Ground Turkey in many dishes where I would have used Ground Beef in the past.

A few days ago we enjoyed Turkey Meatball Grinders with low fat mozzarella cheese & sauteed Green Pepper strips.  Yes, a salad too.  Oh yum!  What a great tasting dinner! 

A one pound package of lean Ground Turkey yields about 16- 17 Turkey Meatballs.  There were extras to freeze & have for dinner on future nights.

  • I use Egg Whites rather than Whole Eggs whenever I can while cooking. 
    (2 Egg Whites = 1 Whole Egg.)  
  • For me quite often, Soy Milk is a replacement for Milk.  
  • My Spice Rack contains the herbs.  :)            

Baked "Turkey Meatballs"

Oven Temperature:  375°F          Baking Time:  28- 30 Minutes 


1 Pound (16 ounces) lean Ground Turkey
3/4 Cups unseasoned Bread Crumbs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 Egg Whites
1/2 Cup Milk  (I use Soy Milk.)
1 Tablespoon dried Parsley
1 teaspoon Oregano
1 teaspoon Basil
1/4 teaspoon dried Chopped Onion
1/4 teaspoon Paprika
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder

  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Mix together- combining well.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  4. Cover a cookie pan with aluminum foil.
  5. Spray foil with PAM.
  6. Make 16- 17 Turkey Meatballs & place evenly on cookie pan.
  7. Bake for 28- 30 Minutes in a 375°F oven
  8. Remove from pan.
Each "Meatball" is moist, deliciously flavored & tastes so good in a toasted grinder roll that's filled with mozzarella cheese, sauteed peppers & tomato sauce.

The extra "Meatballs" freeze very well, too!  These are also so good served over spaghetti!

Do you prepare Baked "Turkey Meatballs"?

Pam- You'd enjoy them with Spaghetti, too! :) They freeze well after baking.
