Calories Per Serving


  • 1 Pound ground turkey breast
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 large white onion, diced very fine (or minced in food processor)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 Cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 jar marinara sauce


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, add all ingredients except marinara sauce and mix together well by hand.

If you find the mixture is too wet, add more breadcrumbs.

Roll meatballs into approximately 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet.

Cook meatballs in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until internal temperature of the meatballs reaches 165 degrees in the center.

In a large pot, add marinara sauce on the stove and heat over medium-low heat.

After done cooking, add meatballs to the sauce and cook for a couple minutes.

Serve over pasta of your choice, or in a sub sandwich with sliced Provolone cheese.
