    1 pound ground turkey
    1 (14 ounce) can of artichoke hearts, diced
    yellow onion, finely diced
    4-5 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
    1 teaspoon dried parsley
    salt and pepper, to taste
    1 teaspoon fat of choice (I used bacon fat)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place skillet over medium heat, add fat of choice, then add diced onions and artichoke hearts.
3. Move artichoke hearts and onions around in the pan and cook until onions are translucent. Remove from heat and let cool.
4. Once they are cooled, in a large bowl, mix together ground turkey, artichoke hearts and onions, and the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
5. Make 18 same sized meatballs. I used an ice cream scoop then shaped them with my hands. Duh.
6. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
8. Eat up. With veggies. With meat sauce. With dipping sauce. With anything really. Your hands for gosh sakes.
