Lisa's Turkey Meatballs
recipe from Lisa @The Cutting Edge of Ordinary

3 pounds ground turkey meat

1 small red onion, grated or very finely chopped

4 – 5 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 ½ cups Panko breadcrumbs

1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

3 large eggs

½ cup milk

1 cup grated Romano cheese

1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley

1/3 cup freshly chopped basil

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

salt/pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl.


Mix all the ingredients together. Just get in there with clean hands and start mixing. Try not to over mix. Just get all the ingredients combined and stop. If the mixture seems a little to loose, add some more breadcrumbs, if it seems a bit too dry, add a little more milk. It’s really a texture thing. You don’t want them to feel dry, but you also don’t want them to feel too wet either.


Roll them loosely into the size of golf balls and place them on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet. This recipe makes about 40 meatballs. I usually put 20 meatballs on each tray and half way through the baking time, I rotate them from top to bottom and bottom to top. Bake for approximately 40 minutes.
