Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

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.
