Ground turkey is a must-have in our kitchen. It’s nutritious, provides our family with our needed protein, and it’s inexpensive. Another thing I love about having ground turkey is that you can cook it in several ways!
I love using turkey meat for low-carb meatloaves, egg roll skillet, sloppy Joes, and meatballs.
Speaking of meatballs, this recipe is my go-to guide when I just want something simple and something I can serve in different ways.
These baked turkey meatballs can be eaten with vegetables on the side, turn into a meatballs sub, or add into your favorite pasta dish!
What You Need to Make These Baked Turkey Meatballs
To make these meatballs, you will need the following:
Lean Ground Turkey
I like a little bit of fat when making meatballs, so I use 85% lean ground turkey.
Adding parmesan or cheddar cheese in these meatballs adds richness to its flavor.
You will need large eggs for this recipe to bind all the ingredients together.
How to Make Baked Meatballs Using Ground Turkey
Step 1. Mix all the ingredients together in one bowl.
In a large mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients together, making sure that everything’s well-incorporated.
Step 2. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the mixture on a prepared pan.
Using a cookie or ice cream scoop, spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture on a prepared pan (for easy cleanup, I usually lined my baking pan with parchment paper or lightly greased aluminum foil).
Step 3. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
I have mine cooked at about 18 minutes. Use a food thermometer to check the doneness of the meatballs.
How long can you store these in the fridge?
These baked turkey meatballs can last in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Can these meatballs be frozen?
Yes! These meatballs freeze well. Let the meatballs cool completely before transferring to a heavy-duty freezer bag.
You can store them in the freezer for 3-4 months.
I’ve tried freezing uncooked meatballs as well. You have to flash freeze them before transferring to a freezer bag so they won’t stick to each other.
