Greek Style Turkey Meatballs

If you guys follow me on Instagram at all.. you know this post is coming … haha in fact you ASKED for it! I’m not a professional chef by ANY stretch of the word, but I occasionally try out fun recipes at home and they turn out good and I post them on my Instagram… so that’s the level of my cooking skills – BUT I am getting better! So yesterday, I kinda mashed a few recipes I’ve tried and created my own and they turned out SOOO good. I took a poll on Instagram and you guys overwhelmingly wanted the recipe… so here ya go…

What you’ll need:

  • 1 package of ground turkey (approx 1.25lbs)
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • half a red onion – half of that chopped / other half save
  • 1/2 of a zucchini , chopped
  • 2/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • Everyday seasoning from Trader Joes (if you don’t use this literally EVERYDAY, you’re missing out)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Mix everything together and making tablespoon size balls and place on a greased baking sheet. I got 19 meatballs for reference. Bake at 350 for about 20 min. Heat a skillet with olive oil and then place meatballs in the pan so they can brown for about 5-7 min or until cooked all the way through. Garnish with the larger onion pieces and dip into Avocado Tzatziki sauce from Trader Joes (SOOO GOOD!)

We also paired this with fresh homemade romesco sauce & fresh veggies… it was literally the easiest thing in the world to make and SOOO yummy! You can find the recipe for the romesco HERE. Tip – save the jar from the bell peppers and use it to store the leftovers – it makes so much – you’ll be glad you saved it ;-)
