Parm Meatball


     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.

Parm Meatball
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.
