Here is a more healthy version of meatballs than using ground beef. Although I’m with Julia Child in regards to everything in moderation, some folks prefer these over beef. Therefore I am including my delicious version for my readers. Add these to spaghetti sauce and simmer for about 30 minutes, or just eat as is with a vegetable or two on the side.
1 lb. ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbsp. grated pecorino Romano cheese
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 or 2 (your choice) tsp. minced garlic
Sprinkling of black pepper
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and take out a pan that’s about 11 x7 – spray with cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl, lightly beat the egg then add everything except the meat and mix well. Add the turkey and mix well again then shape into meatballs about the size of walnuts and place in the pan. They will fit nice and tight and that’s okay. Cook for 30-40 minutes, cool.
