This is how I made them. He likes them but doesn’t LOVE them. Me? I think they are great! and so does the child. They are much closer to a traditional meatball. The recipe here uses all dry ingredients for convenience sake. However, I think the meatballs would really pop with some fresh herbs, fresh minced onion and fresh garlic.
Either way, I thought the base recipe would give you some ideas. Cook them for a few hours in my Homemade Sauce and your house will smell like an Italian restaurant, I swear! :)
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread (I use the ends)
- 1/2 lbs (8oz) lean ground turkey
- 1/2 lbs (8oz) lean ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tbsp dried basil
- 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
- 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
- Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
Run the bread through your food processor to make the bread crumbs.
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands until well blended.
Weight out 1 oz of meat and roll into a ball. It should make 20 meatballs with a little leftover.
Now, you can broil these as I do with these turkey meatballs or you can simple pan fry with a little olive oil spray in the same pot you are making sauce in. That’s what I did this morning.
I then cooked the meatball in the sauce all day (6 hours.)
P.S. Can you tell I’m LOVING my new camera? Also notice the little guy back there, he wasn’t feeling well today. :(
