Spicy Turkey Meatballs

I was at the grocery store and as usual browsing the meat aisles for a good deal.

There was some ground turkey (85-15 - a little more fat than I like) at a great price.

I have a few recipes I've used ground turkey for before - chilli, lasagna, shepherd's pie; don't think I've done a meatball one yet.

Anyways, here we go. It's super easy and has just 5 ingredients.


1 family size pack of ground turkey, an egg, 1/2 a large red bell pepper, 1/4 of a large white onion (both finely chopped), Adobo seasonings (salt and black pepper optional)

What to do

Step 1: In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon

Step 2: Divide mixture into 12 equal parts. An easy way is to divide in four by running a line both horizontally and vertically and dividing each quarter into three. The mixture will be a tad sticky so wet fingers and palms lightly.

Step 3: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Then mold into rounds (meat balls) and place in a baking dish. 

Step 4: Bake in oven until brown and cooked all the way through (you can spray a little bit of cooking spray on the meatballs if you like). At about half way through, pour out the liquid and place back in the oven until done. It takes about 35 - 45 minutes.

Et Voila!

Serve with a little bit of ketchup and enjoy as a snack (like I did in the above picture) or serve along with pasta, rice or whatever you like.
