So let me start by saying...meatballs are the new cupcakes! Don't even pretend you're not aware. There are a milllllllion ways to make meatballs and many of them are surprisingly not un-healthy. This the first but not last meatball recipe I'll share. So get excited --more are coming!
Makes approx. 12 meatballs
-1.3 pounds ground lean turkey
-1 bushel parsley, chopped
-1/2 finely chopped red onion
-3 large garlic cloves finely chopped
-1/2-1/4 cup panko
-ground black pepper
-crushed red pepper
Mix everything together. Now put in the fridge for 20 minutes to set while your oven is preheating at 350.
What?? You ask. These are the worst step by step instructions ever.
Sorry it's really that easy. Now take your meatball mixture, roll into 12 evenly sized balls and put on an oiled pan (covered). Leave in for 25 minutes....and you're done!
You can eat them with almost anything, here you see them paired with a balsamic arugula salad. The balsamic seeps into the turkey meatballs as you are cutting and eating and YUMMM...GIVE IT A TRY!
