Bitesize Turkeyballs

This healthy alternative to beef meatballs are packed with flavor but none of the fat. These moist turkeyballs are so tasty, you will forget they are actually good for you! Serve them with pasta, vegetables or on top of a fresh salad. You will be hooked!

3/4 Italian bread crumbs
1 small onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of dried oregano
1 large egg
1/2 cup chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
1 pound of ground turkey
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 cup of chicken broth

Kitchen Essentials:
Cutting board
Measuring cups and spoons
Wooden spoon
Medium bowl
Large non-stick pan
Baking dish

Finely chop the onion, garlic and parsley. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the bread crumbs, onion, garlic, egg, parsley, dried oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the turkey and mix with a spoon until combined.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and create bitesize balls. Add the meatballs to the oil and cook on each side until the crust is golden brown. Don't cook them too long because they will continue to cook in the oven. This will keep them moist.

In the meantime, add the chicken broth to the baking dish and add the semi-cooked meatballs. Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the meatballs.
