Ramona’s So-Easy-So-Fast Turkey Meatballs


2 packages ground turkey from Costco (they come in sets of 4)

2 eggs (big ones, from my chickens, so probably 3 medium?)

1 yellow onion, minced

3 big cloves of garlic, minced

3 big pieces of bread (I used sourdough, from Costco), crumbed in food processor

¼ cup minced parsley

Salt, pepper, Italian Seasoning to taste


Preheat oven to 350F

Heat up 1tbsp olive oil in a small skillet, put in onions, cook over medium heat till onions are soft (5-10 minutes), add minced garlic, cook for another minute or two. Allow it to cool to warm/room temp, (not hot)

In a large bowl, mix breadcrumbs and eggs, then add turkey, spices, and onion mixture, stirring/mixing/combining with your hand(s).

Shape into 1” meatballs and place on a baking sheet, cook for 25-35 minutes (until no longer pink inside) (my oven took a full 35 minutes, but they were still nice and juicy..)

Cool and refrigerate or freeze, then pop them into a pan with sauce and heat till all warm…. Serve over pasta (or on toothpicks as toddler finger food)

I combined recipes from Williams Sonoma, Alton Brown, and several recipes on various cooking websites to get this one, and I will most definitely be making them again!)
