Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey 93% lean
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 carrot
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Use a food processor to chop all vegetables into small pieces. Add the seasoning and egg and give it a pulse to mix.
  • Add the oats and ground turkey and pulse it until well combined or if your food processor is not big enough, use a large bowl to mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to form uniform meatballs and place it on the baking sheet. Brush meatballs with olive oil or spray it with canola oil.
  • Bake it for 15 minutes, flip meatballs and bake for another 10 minutes or until done.

Notes

This recipe yields pretty good size meatballs. If you want smaller ones, instead of using a 1/3 measuring cup, use a 1/4 measuring cup or a small ice cream scooper.
