Tips for making Baked Turkey Meatball Recipe
While you can use ground chicken for this recipe, I prefer the taste and texture of ground turkey. When making these baked turkey meatballs, you may have to get your hands a bit dirty, but I have an awesome trick that you will love!
- Use your stand mixer with dough hook to mix the ground meat and seasoning mixture to keep your hands clean!
- Grab a small ice cream scoop or melon baller to scoop the mixture onto your baking plate in equal portions
- Make double batches, and freeze part of the meatballs on a baking sheet raw. Leave in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until solid, then pop them off the baking sheet and into a freezer bag for later. Just drop them onto a baking dish and bake for an extra 15-20 minutes when ready to make them again.
Best Ways to Serve Baked Turkey Meatball Recipe
You can always serve these turkey meatballs over pasta with your favorite sauce. If you are like me though, you love thinking outside the box a bit. Below are some different ways you can fit this high protein option into meal time without fuss.
- Add to a tomato based soup for added protein
- Serve over zucchini or squash noodles for a low carb option
