These oven-baked meatballs are fast and easy to prepare and very kid-friendly. You can serve them with pasta and spaghetti sauce or just eat them with ketchup, as my children do. Feel free to substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey. The turkey should have at least 7% fat.
My children are eating these meatballs as I’m writing the review! They love it and so do I! Made them for lunch today while keeping busy with 4 children at home (two of them are 1 year old boys)so you can imagine that it’s fast and easy to make! I would recommend it to everyone!
I made a couple of changes and they (still) came out great! I used a pound of ground sirloin and kept the other ingredients, but then also added a little garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and minced dried onions. I formed them by hand and they came out moist and flavorful! These are very close to how my mom used to make meatballs – thanks for the help and great recipe!
This recipe was very easy to follow and since this was my first attempt at making meatballs that was a plus. I just popped them out of the oven and into my favorite suace. It was easy and fun!
These are the first meatballs I’ve ever made so I can’t really compare but I thought they were tasty and very easy to make. I’d certainly make them again and probably freeze a bunch.
What a great basic recipe! I added parm. cheese but forgot to add a little garlic powder. Also, I only had ground turkey breast meat on hand rather than just regular ground turkey with 7% fat. Next time I’ll use regular as I bet it helps with the flavor. Otherwise, these turned out great and were a cinch to make.
This is a keeper for me! I was so tired of browning meatballs in a skillet and having a greasy mess to clean up. I used ground beef for this and it turned out great! Very little time required in preparation and easy clean up…and they tasted great too!
