Number of Servings: 7


    1 cup breadcrumbs (about 2 slices of bread ground)
    1.5-2lb ground turkey
    1 tbsp chopped oregano or parsley
    1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Pinch of red pepper flakes
    2 small garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 large egg
    Olive oil
    4 cups prepared tomato sauce


Place the breadcrumbs in a large bowl with 1/2 cup warm water and all of the meatball ingredients except for the olive oil and tomato sauce.

Combine with a fork, breaking up clumps of meat until the ingredients are evenly distributed. Form mixture into 2-inch meatballs.

Heat a generous slick of oil (few tablespoons) in a large saute pan with a lid. Brown meatballs in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan or nudge them before they are nicely browned. Transfer meatballs to a paper towel-lined tray and continue until they are all browned.

Discard the oil and heat your tomato sauce in the pan. Add the meatballs, cover the pan and simmer them on the lowest heat possible for 25 to 30 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.

I also browned mushrooms in the pan before adding the sauce and served the meatballs over baked spaghetti squash with some grated cheese. Yumm!
