Weeknight Dinners: Baked Turkey Meatballs


Forget about fumbling with a pan of hot oil – bake your way to a meatball feast.

Makes 16 meatballs

1 pound ground turkey (90% lean)
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons whole wheat panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon prepared pesto
Kosher salt and black pepper
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees-F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, egg, both bread crumbs, and pesto. Season with 1⁄2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. With clean hands, gently mix well and form into sixteen 1-ounce balls. Transfer to lined baking sheet, brush with olive oil and bake for 20 minutes, turning once or until the internal temperature reaches 160-degrees F
