Italian Turkey Meatballs
1/2 small yellow onion
1 and 1/4 pound ground turkey meat
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp basil
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in medium bowl and mix till well combined. I use my hands to mix as nothing else seems to do as good of a job. Roll mixed meat into heaping one inch balls and bake for 30 minutes.
If serving with marinara, place meatballs in skillet with enough sauce to cover meatballs and heat for 10-12 minutes over medium heat.
I serve the meatballs with a red marinara sauce over my favorite whole-wheat pasta topped with freshly grated parmesan. Speaking of freshly grated parmesan, its hard to admit, but up until now I have used the grated parmesan in a jar. I know, don't hate me, it was just easy. There is such a difference and I promise from now on to always use freshly grated parmesan!
Does anyone own one of those rotary cheese graters? I am trying to figure out if it is worth the investment and if it really works that much better than a regular box grater.
