Weeknight Turkey Meatballs
1 lb ground turkey (NOT turkey breast)
1 egg, lightly beaten
¼ cup Italian or garlic/herb seasoned breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon granulated onion
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 25-oz jar good-quality Tomato Basil pasta sauce
In a medium bowl, mix turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings with hands until incorporated. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out meat mixture and roll between your palms to form meatballs. It helps to make all the meatballs at once before adding them to the skillet so they cook evenly.
Spray a large skillet generously with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add you meatballs in a single layer and brown for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Use tongs to turn the meatballs. Add entire jar of pasta sauce, cover, and lower heat. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve. We typically eat this as a main course but you could just as easily serve these meatballs as an appetizer with some toasted Italian bread.
