Let's Cook- Italian Turkey Meatballs

Italian Turkey Meatballs
Recipe by Chef Huda


Turkey Meatballs

1 lb Lean Ground Turkey
2 clove Garlic-Minced
1/3 cup Onion-Chopped
1/2 cup Bread crumbs-Plain or Flavored
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese-Grated
2 Large Eggs
1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper

Let get Started

Please Wash your Hands...

Okay, now we are ready to start....

Place in a Large bowl the Lean ground turkey, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic and Italian seasoning in a bowl. Quickly whip the 2 eggs together in a separated bowl then pour into the Large bowl with everything else and mix, until all of your ingredients are friendly.

Chef Huda’s Tip: When mixing everything you can use your hands. I like being hands on!

Use a Tablespoon to loosely measure out the mixture (Large scoops). Place the mixture in your hand and roll it into a ball and then set aside for cooking. Repeat this process until the desired amount of Turkey Meatballs are made. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Grizzle the pan with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Place the Turkey Meatballs in the skillet.

Chef Huda Cooking Tip: Please don't crowd them in the pan. If the pan is too crowded the Meatballs will steam instead of brown.

Turn the Turkey Meatballs every couple minutes to brown on all sides. When the Turkey Meatballs are done, let them rest for 3-5 minutes. If the meatballs are extra large finish them in the oven.

Now let’s make something Pretty and Delicious! These meatballs are delicious all by themselves, but you can serve them with pasta, in a sub, however you like. Now, all you have to do is Enjoy!

Chef Huda’s Healthy Tip: Turkey are a great meat. Turkey is a great source of protein and iron. Turkey meat is lower in fat than other meat. Iron can help prevent hair loss.

You know what I prefer to using bread crumbs? Bulgur! This Mediterranean staple is a healthy alternative. But because there's no salt/seasonings added to it, make sure to season your turkey meatballs well. Throw in some parsley, too. It's delish, I swear.
