Easy turkey and Parmesan meatballs

Serves 12 Servings


  • 2 small onions, very coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 clove garlic
  • 3 pound ground turkey (preferably dark meat)
  • 1 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 4 cup large eggs
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup whole milk


Baking Directions:

In a food processor, combine the onions, parsley, and garlic and process until finely chopped.

Transfer the onion mixture to a large bowl and add the turkey, Parmesan, eggs, bread crumbs, milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.

Use your hands to gently combine.

Form the meat mixture into 48 meatballs (about 2 tablespoons each).

The meatballs can be frozen at this point (see below).

Heat broiler.

Place the meatballs on a foil-lined broilerproof rimmed baking sheet and broil, turning once, until cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.


To freeze: freeze uncooked meatballs on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet until firm.

Transfer to freezer-safe containers and freeze for up to 3 months.

Thaw before cooking.
