Recipe of the Week: Thanksgiving Turkey Meatballs

Posted by the Mom (aka Kelly Biedny)

2_kids_cooking-making_turkey_meatballsEverybody knows that Thanksgiving dinner means turkey. Since I don’t have the kids on Thanksgiving day every year, and since I don’t want them to get all turkey-ed out, when we make our day after Thanksgiving meal, it usually includes turkey meatballs.

And, I’ll just admit it now, we are meatball lovers, we have them a lot and in all meat varieties (turkey, chicken, pork and hamburger). This recipe is our favorite, we get lots of compliments on it; and let’s just face it, juicy, little balls of seasoned ground meat–you can’t go wrong!

Have fun making these tasty meatballs and have a great Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Turkey Meatballs

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs (we recommend panko)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 Tablespoon italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 onions (optional)


  • Mix all ingredients in bowl and squish all together with your hands (kids love this part). When everything is well mixed together, form into 1 1/2 to 2 inch balls. Place on a foil covered baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.

    […] Who doesn’t love mashed potatoes? Well, I’m sure there are some people…actually Alex is pretty picky about his mashed potatoes–they have to be smooth, no lumps, or he won’t eat ‘em. Anyway, all of us love these and they’re easy enough that we can all make them together. They also go great with our Thankgiving turkey meatballs–Enjoy! […]
