Ingredients

Instructions 

  • First, preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients. Use your hands or a spoon, combine ingredients.
  • Once combined, spray hands with nonstick spray. Use an ice cream scoop or hands to form 1 inch round meatballs.
  • Continue for remaining meatball mixture. Place meatballs on parchment lined pan.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and no pink remains. If meatballs are on the smaller side, check after 15 minutes.
  • Remove meatballs from oven. Discard excess cooking grease.
  • Warm up marinara sauce. Serve with spaghetti squash and sauce if desired!

Notes

  • Use a rimmed baking pan lined with parchment paper for easier clean up.
  • Choose ground turkey that isn't too lean.  I recommend using 85% fat or even less.  Anything more than 85% will be too dry.
  • When combining ingredients, try not to overwork the meat mixture.
  • Spray hands with nonstick spray before forming meatballs.  This helps them not stick to your hands.
  • If meatball mixture is still too sticky, place it in the fridge or freezer for 5 minutes to firm up.
  • Ground turkey is done cooking when it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • Store meatballs in freezer for up to 1 month.  Thaw before reheating and eating.
  • Warm up Whole30 marinara sauce before tossing with meatballs.
  • Nutritional value does not include sauce or spaghetti squash.
  • This recipe makes about 10 medium sized meatballs or 15 small sized meatballs.
