Turkey Meatballs, yum!

I am cooking at home these days and for those who know me, well, you know I am not so great in the kitchen.  "I've got to admit it's getting better...A little better all the time" - The Beatles  

I recently made what could be the most simple recipe ever of turkey meatballs.  They were FANTASTIC, and not just according to me - Phil, Jake, and John ate all 18 meatballs in one sitting.  I was shocked.  I made them again a week later and all but 5 were left between Phil and myself.  That means Phil ate 10 meatballs himself!

Here's the super simple recipe:


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 package ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon of oregano, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 350
Coat 9x13 dish with 2 tbsp. olive oil and place in oven. 

In large bowl combine beaten egg, Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, turkey, and seasonings.  Mix well by hand until ingredients are mixed completely together.  Roll into balls and place into preheated baking dish.  Push down so bottom of meatballs are flat.   Bake for 15 minutes then flip meatballs.  Bake for five more minutes. Makes 18 meatballs.

Voila!  They're delicious.  I didn't have pasta with mine, just sauce (or gravy) and they were scrumptious.

Absolutely Ugo. They're delicious,simple, and healthy. I've made them three times now. I've even used the recipe (with a few tweaks) to make turkey burgers.
