5-Minutes (to make!) Turkey Meatballs

Ok, the name of these meatballs is kind of deceiving because they aren’t ready to eat in 5 minutes. BUT, they only take 5 minutes to make! So that’s half a win, right?!

You know how much I love to make meatballs, so here’s the fastest way I’ve found to make them. All you do is mix everything together, roll into meatballs and bake. The oven does most of the work and then you can serve them as is, freeze them, add them to soup or pasta…. the possibilities are endless!

    • Hi Katie! The egg is just a binder, so you can use lots of other things to bind the meatball like: cheese (ricotta is a good one) or mashed potato or bread crumbs soaked in milk or even tomato paste as a substitute. A flax egg (flaxseed + water) is another option too. Just start with a little bit of whichever you use and keep adding until the consistency looks right.
