Baked Turkey Meatballs Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Set aside.

Pour tomato sauce into 9×13” glass baking dish and spread in a thin layer to cover the bottom and set aside.

Add fat-free ground turkey, eggs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, parsley, garlic, onion salt, and crushed red pepper flakes to a large glass bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.

Thoroughly combine mixture with your hands and divide into 24 equal-sized portions. (For larger meatballs, separate into 18 portions). Add more Parmesan cheese, if necessary, to bind the ingredients.

Gently roll each portion into a ball and place on a prepared baking sheet, leaving room between each meatball. Place baking sheet in preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from oven and transfer turkey meatballs to prepared baking dish.

Drizzle with additional tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Place baking dish in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, or until sauce and meatballs are heated through.

Remove from oven and serve these baked turkey meatballs immediately with additional tomato sauce, Parmesan cheese, and fresh basil, if desired.
