Ingredients
  • 1 - 1.5 lbs. of ground turkey (the package I use is 1.2 lbs.)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (for gluten free, I use Schar breadcrumbs)
  • 1/3 cup dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 1 - 1.5 tsp seasoned salt (depends on how salty you want them)
  • black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp homemade spaghetti sauce, or crushed tomatoes

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine everything except the turkey and mix well.
  2. Add the turkey and blend (works best with your hands)
  3. Form small balls of the meat and place on a cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes (this could be longer or shorter depending on the size of the meatballs).
  5. If you have prepared sauce as well, place the meatballs in the sauce and simmer for a half hour (optional) .
