Classic Turkey Meatballs
These meatballs have tons of flavor and are very versatile. I served them with the Basmati Rice Medley from Trader Joe's, but they could work with just about anything!
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup minced onions
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 T minced garlic
a few pinches each of salt and pepper
Start by sauteing the onions and mushrooms until they are soft.
Set the mushrooms and onions with the other ingredients to slightly cool, then begin to add all the ingredients to the turkey. The order of ingredients doesn't matter, but add them slowly while continuing to mix. You don't want big clumps of onions or breadcrumbs in the mixture. I mix with my hands; it's messy, but efficient. Once you have all of the ingredients evenly mixed, use a cookie dough scoop to grab pieces of the mixture and arrange the meatballs on a greased piece of foil placed on a cookie sheet.
Bake them at 350° for about 25 minutes. Cut one in half to make sure they are fully cooked. Enjoy!!
