Description

These baked turkey & quinoa meatballs are simply seasoned for maximum versatility and baked in the oven to keep the process easy and fast!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 24 oz. ground turkey (I used dark meat, 85% lean)
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (cook the quinoa in broth for extra flavor!)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven and two large cookie sheets to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix together with your hands until just combined.
  3. Take pan out of oven, spray with olive oil and using a cookie scoop, scoop out golf ball sized balls onto pan.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, flip meatballs and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Serve with pasta and your favorite sauce, or as desired!

Notes

  • Nutrition facts are for one meatball.
  • Be sure to preheat the pans while the oven is preheating.
  • Meatballs are a little smaller than golfballs, if you make them larger, you may need to adjust cooking time and increase it a bit.
