Still sick. Sleep is still calling my name...constantly, all the time. Right now even. So this is just going to be a recipe share day. Love making meatballs for people, and not necessarily meatballs just to be smothered in sauce. I love just having a damn good meatball that can stand up on its own if need be. This is that kind of meatball for me.
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 large egg
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumb
Handful of chopped parsley
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Place turkey in a bowl and season with Italian seasonings, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder, plus salt and pepper. Add in egg, shredded cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley and a decent drizzle of olive oil to the bowl. Mix meat and form into 12 large meatballs or 16 medium sized.
3. Bake 15 minutes until golden and firm.
