Baked Turkey Meatball Ingredients:
Just mix up the ingredients and roll!
- Ground Turkey (or chicken)
- Panko Breadcrumbs
- Olive Oil
- Grated Parmesan
- Spices: Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Salt and Pepper
How to Freeze the Meatballs:
- After Baking: To freeze the baked turkey meatballs, follow the recipe and bake the meatballs. Allow to cool then freeze. To avoid the meatballs from sticking, freeze the meatballs on a sheet pan or plate first then transfer to a container or plastic bag. You then can reheat the frozen meatballs from frozen by warming in the oven (400°F for 15-20 minutes), in the microwave, or my favorite - simmering in delicious marinara sauce to be served over pasta.
- Before Baking: Freeze the unbaked meatballs on a baking sheet before transferring to a plastic bag or container. Bake the frozen meatballs, without thawing, at 400° F for 25-30 minutes until cooked through.
Meatballs are a perfect meal prep solution because they are so versatile! The obvious option is to serve with marinara and pasta sauce, on their own dipped into a sauce, turned into meatball subs or sliders, thrown into a bowl with any carb and veggies, or even on top of a salad.
