No ratings yet
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 1 hr 35 mins
Servings 30 meatballs

what you'll need

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 onion chopped or grated
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying

let's do it

  • Start by chopping or grating the onion and mincing the garlic. If needed, grate the Parmesan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Be sure not to overmix.
  • Scoop out the mixture and form a ball with your hand. Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop with a trigger will help you keep the meatballs even sized.
  • Use the "ball and glove" technique to get the air bubbles out of the meatball.
  • Place on a covered plate and refrigerate for at least one hour or up to overnight. If you're going to freeze, freeze these raw meatballs on a cookie sheet and then transfer to a resealable freezer-safe container.
  • When ready to cook, heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high. Add a few meatballs at a time and cook, turning occasionally until well-browned on all sides.
  • Transfer the meatballs to a plate and finish the rest of the meatballs.
  • Enjoy with a delicious pasta dish , on a sub or store in the freezer for future dishes!
