Garlic Parmesan Turkey Meatballs

These scrumptious, gluten-free turkey meatballs are a real crowd-pleaser. Here, traditional bread crumbs are replaced with a hearty portion of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, while a combination of spices and fresh herbs pack tons of flavor into every bite.

These ground turkey meatballs freeze well, so make a double or triple batch if time allows. Then simply pull out of the freezer, reheat, and serve with spaghetti squash, zucchini noodles, or your favorite gluten-free pasta for a quick and delicious weeknight meal.

Ingredients for this Recipe :

  • 2 cup sugar-free tomato sauce
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey breast
  • 1 large (or 2 small) eggs
  • 1½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1½ tbsp fresh oregano leaves
  • 3 tbsp fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp onion salt
  • 1/2 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Additional tomato sauce, Parmesan cheese, and fresh basil for serving.

Tip :

To help the meatballs hold their round shape, bake them on their own first before adding the tomato sauce.

How to Make Turkey Meatballs :

Step 1:

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Set aside.

Step 2:

Pour tomato sauce into 9×13” glass baking dish and spread in a thin layer to cover the bottom and set aside.

Step 3:

Add ground turkey, eggs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, parsley, garlic, onion salt, and crushed red pepper flakes to a large glass bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Thoroughly combine the mixture with your hands and divide it into 24 equal-sized portions. (For larger meatballs, separate into 18 portions). Add more Parmesan cheese, if necessary, to bind the ingredients.

Step 4:

Gently roll each portion into a ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet, leaving room between each meatball. Place baking sheet in preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer meatballs to prepared baking dish. Drizzle with additional tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Step 5:

Place baking dish in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, or until sauce and meatballs are heated through. Remove from oven and serve these baked turkey meatballs immediately with additional tomato sauce, Parmesan cheese, and fresh basil, if desired.
