There are nights when I want to feel adventurous in the kitchen, and then there are nights when I want my dinner to come up, give me a hug, and tell me that, yes, I am doing a good job. Those are the nights I make Baked Turkey Meatballs.
Fork-tender, filling, and layered with Italian spices and herbs, these healthy turkey meatballs want to be your mealtime cheerleader.
Baked Turkey Meatballs are easy to make and won’t make you hunt through the grocery store for ingredients—in fact, once you have your ground turkey and Parmesan in the fridge, you’re likely to already have everything else in your pantry—and the end result is so intrinsically satisfying, you’ll feel like a true dinner hero.
If you need a large quantity of turkey meatballs for a crowd, you can check out my Crock Pot Turkey Meatballs. For regular weeknight dinners, however, this Baked Turkey Meatball recipe is the one I turn to first.
The recipe yields about 20 meatballs, so it covers a few dinners for our leftover-loving household of two, or it feeds a small dinner group.
In addition to being quick and fuss-free to prepare, Baked Turkey Meatballs are fundamentally delicious. They offer that special, soul-touching comfort that belongs uniquely to Italian food.
