How to make it

  • Combine all ingredients and mix gently just to incorporate. See Photo
  • Form into meatballs of desired size and place on parchment lined baking sheet.
  • For mini meatballs measure about 1 1/2 tsp and roll gently. For medium-large meatballs measure about 1 1/2 tbsp.
  • Yields 80 mini meatballs and serves 6 people 13-14 meatballs as entree portions/15-20 people 4-5 meatballs as appetizer portions.
  • Or:
  • Yields 27-28 medium-large meatballs and serves 6 people 4-5 meatballs as entree portions.
  • *Note: Be careful not to overwork meat when mixing or shaping in order to produce the best texture for light, fluffy meatballs.
  • Place cookie sheet in refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
  • You may cook these in a variety of ways, one of which is to heat 1/2 tbsp each of canola oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat and pan fry meatballs for about 8 minutes, covered. Flip about halfway through until lightly browned and just firm (cooked through).

    These are first-class tasty meatballs we had for dinner last night. I used extra lean ground chicken and served them with large flat eggs noodles and a creamy alfredo type sauce. I was able to make 10 entree size balls and the only thing I did not have was fresh lemon zest. I substituted a couple of squirts of concentrated lemon instead. We ate 6 and the rest will be frozen and used in subs. Dahlia' directions were bang on. I can see using this for a meatloaf too and when cooled could be a lovely sliced meat for sandwiches etc.( without all the preservatives you get in deli meat.) The garlic did not overpower the other ingredients and all the flavours complimented each other extremely well. Tiny ones could certainly go in soups or as a great little appetizers. I can see myself experimenting more with this recipe in the future. Thanks Dahlia for sharing such a wonderful versatile post.:-)

    These look good even though I'm not a ground turkey fan, could use beef.
