Today I made some meatballs out of ground turkey. Red meat hasn't been agreeing with me during this pandemic and my stomach is also uneasy to strong spices right now as well.
Lori's Turkey Meatballs
1 lb. Ground Turkey (I use no spice natural flavoring.)
3 cloves of minced organic garlic
1/2 a medium organic onion finely chopped
1 tsp organic oregano
1/4 tsp of organic thyme and a pinch
1 1/2 tbsp organic Olive oil
3 slices organic white bread
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp organic black ground pepper
1/8 c. Organic milk
24 ounces of unsalted organic crushed tomatoes
Place ground turkey in a large bowl. Put bread in toaster to lightly brown. Mince garlic and chop onion. Add to ground turkey. Also add 1/4 tsp thyme, Oregano, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Add 1/2 tbsp olive oil and milk. Break the toasted bread into tiny pieces and add to mixture. Stir together slowly to give the bread time to incorporate into the stuffing mixture. Once mixed through let it set while you put 1 tbsp of olive oil into a large fry pan at medium heat. Roll 15 meatballs, almost 1/4 c. of ground turkey meatball mixture. Once the pan is sizzling add all meatballs and brown 3-4 minutes on each side. Add sauce, pinch of thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir everything and simmer for 2 hours. Serve over your favorite pasta. I suggest spaghetti or penne.
