I’ve been wanting to try a meatball recipe for a while and I finally got it together and went for it.

I loved this recipe because it was really inexpensive, easy to make, and made enough portions for leftovers.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 package ground turkey
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 jar tomato sauce
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Non-stick cooking spray


1. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high heat. Add chopped onions, celery, and bell peppers and saute 2-3 minutes or until tender.


2. In a large bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Add in onions, celery, and bell peppers. Mix well.


3. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray on medium-high heat  (can be the same one used for sauteeing the veggies). Using an ice cream scooper or your hands, form the meat into golf ball-sized meatballs. Place meatballs on skillet.



4. Cook for 8-10 minutes until cooked thoroughly making sure to cook on both sides. Continue until all of the meat mixture is cooked.



5. Enjoy! I served this dish with mixed vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes.
