Ingredients

    1 pound 99% fat free ground turkey
    2 extra large eggs
    3/4 cup more or less bread crumbs (I made mine from a leftover hamburger bun, so that is what I put in the recipe)
    2 teaspoons fennel seed
    2 teaspoons dried parsley
    1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    scant olive oil spray

Tips

Because the turkey is so lean, it can get really dry and rubbery if cooked too fast for too long. The flavor is excellent, but they do need broth or sauce.


Directions

Add turkey, eggs, breadcrumbs, fennel, parsley, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and red pepper to a large bowl. Mix very well. Cover and let sit in fridge for at least an hour, preferably overnight. Make small 1-1/2 inch meatballs (I used my cookie dough scoop and got about 27) and brown slightly in nonstick pan sprayed with olive oil. You can turn the heat down to low, cover and let get done all the way through (they do freeze really well) or slightly brown on the outside and toss them in a crockpot with a jar of red sauce and a can of diced tomatoes before work in the morning. After simmering in the sauce all day, they are wonderful with a little whole grain pasta and a small salad!

Serving Size: Makes 9 servings of 3 meatballs each
