Homemade Turkey Meatballs

I love meatballs. If we go out to eat and there is a meatball dish on the menu, you can be 100% sure that I will choose it. To me, meatballs are little balls of deliciousness. Adrian also shares  my love of meatballs so I make them often for dinner. Last night, I made homemade turkey meatballs and Adrian gobbled them up! Homemade meatballs are so easy to make and can be frozen for a later date! So perfect for busy families like mine!

Homemade turkey meatballs. So delicious and so easy to make.

Homemade Turkey Meatballs
(makes about 25)
2 lbs ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped onions
4 garlic cloves, diced
1 egg
1 bunch chopped fresh sage or 1 tbsp dried sage
3 tbsp mesquite smoked barbeque sauce
1/4 cup bread crumbs
splash of milk
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium sized bowl, combine the turkey, onions, garlic, egg, sage, barbeque sauce, bread crumbs, milk, salt and pepper. Make sure to use your hands, they are going to get dirty shaping meatballs anyway. 

With a small scoop, scoop up about 1 tbsp of meat mixture and roll into a meatball with your hands. Place on a ungreased baking sheet. 

Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake for 35-40 minutes. 

Remove from oven and serve with pasta or mashed potatoes!

  1. I love meatballs very much. I made them a few months back and Scarlet loved them. She never eats meat unless it's chicken nuggets! I'll have to make these for her. And Des and Cassidy love meatballs too.

  2. These look great! I'm trying to eat healthier and turkey is better for me.

  3. Ooh I love them too!! Hubby thinks Im strange but I love them with a spinach Alfredo the best!! Definitely making this the next time he's out of town!! (he swears turkey doesn't taste the same lol)

  4. I have always made meatballs but this post is definitely giving me new ideas for dinner. Thanks for sharing!
