  • Onion, 1 small, minced or finely chopped
  • Garlic, minced, 2 tsp(s)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, ¼ cup(s)
  • Basil, fresh, ¼ cup(s), chopped
  • Eggs, 1 large, yolk only
  • Black pepper, 0.13 tsp(s), ground
  • Ground turkey, lean, raw, 1 lb(s)

Method

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Heat a non-stick frying pan to medium heat. Sauté the onions and garlic until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, combine the onions, garlic, cheese, basil, egg yolk and black pepper and mix well. Add the turkey; gently mix with clean damp hands until just combined. Form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs — about 1 heaping tablespoon each. 

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until meatballs reach an internal temperature of 160°F.

Makes about 24 meatballs (4 meatballs per serving).

TIP:

  • If you prefer, you can cook the meatballs in the non-stick frying pan until golden brown and cooked through.  
  • You can freeze uncooked meatballs in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw meatballs in the refrigerator overnight before baking.
