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
(makes about 25)
2 lbs ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped onions
4 garlic cloves, diced
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!
