These meatballs came out really nicely!! I usually prefer how beef meatballs taste,
but these are rounded, tasty and entirely satisfying!
Turkey Walnut Meatballs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl mix:
1 small onion diced
1 clove garlic minced
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup walnuts (pulse in a food processor until they become granules)
1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
Dash of some sort of Italian seasoning… dried oregano, parsley, basil…
Salt and black pepper
Form into 1 + 1/2 inch balls and place in a large heated pan with olive oil and a dash of tomato sauce. I usually make my sauce in a separate pot, then put about 1/2 a cup in with the meatballs. This way the meatballs stay tidy and the sauce doesn’t get a super meaty flavor. That’s the way I prefer it. Having grown up vegetarian, I am weird about random meat related things. Cook at medium heat and flip when they look ready. Once the meat balls are close to done, place in a baking dish and bake at 375 degrees until the meatballs begin to have a nice light brownness, about 10-15 minutes.
