Baked Italian Turkey Meatballs

Those that know me or have worked with me know that I am a health food fanatic. I'm on a never ending quest to create meals that are equal parts simple, experimental, delicious and healthy! You can find tons of my culinary creations on our Instagram, meg_foodallergypartners. 

Here's a great go-to in our house for busy week nights, baked italian turkey meatballs (as if we haven't had enough tryptophan this week with Thanksgiving:) 

Let me know if you have an allergy or intolerance to any one of these ingredients and we can figure out a great substitute. 



Baked Italian Turkey Meatballs

1 to 1.5 pounds lean ground turkey

1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I prefer Panko)

1/3 cup tomato sauce

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon ground mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed 

Grease a 9x13 pan (I use olive oil). Mix all ingredients in a bowl, then form 25-30 meatballs. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until cooked through. We also like to turn on the broiler for another minute or so to brown the tops.
