These can either be fried or baked. They are great either way.
- 1 lb ground turkey (85% or 93% lean)
- 1/4 cup grated onion (about 1 small onion)
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tbs copped Italian parsley (optional)
Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 35mins
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well using your hands, until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Using a cookie scoop, roll the meat mixture into 1 1/4 inch balls and place on a tray or cookie sheet.
You can either bake the meatballs in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes OR you can fry the meatballs in 2 TBS of olive oil until browned (about 3 or 4 minutes per side).
Put cooked meatballs in tomato sauce and let simmer for another 10 minutes.
NOTE: if you fry the meatballs, remove them from the frying pan, then add the tomato sauce to the same pan to take advantage of the drippings.
