I adapted this recipe from my girl Blair over at @balancewb but I would say this is one of the BEST things I have ever made. I ate them with some Rao's homemade sauce with fresh parm on top. Can even add some spaghetti squash or zoodles for a full meal. I used fresh parsley, thyme, and oregano so the flavor was on point!

Ingredients:  (yield: 12 meatballs)

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/4-1/3 cup minced sweet onion
  • 1 egg (I used a duck egg)
  • 1/4 cup Kite Hill chive cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup panko or breadcrumbs (I used Whole Foods coconut macadamia nut panko)
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 3 T fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 t sea salt
  • pinch of ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees on bake; line baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid sticking
  2. Sauté onions and garlic with oil (coconut/avocado) over medium heat until translucent
  3. Add all other ingredients to a large bowl and mix together.
  4. Add in onion and garlic once cooled and mix all together
  5. Roll into balls and place on sheet
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipped half way. I took out once they were a little bit golden brown on the bottoms

Note: If balls are not sticking together enough, you can add more breadcrumbs (but should be fine)
