Lovely recipe for Baked Turkey Meatballs – a healthier alternative to beef. You can serve this with rice, couscous, pasta or a salad. Delish.
450 gr Ground Turkey
1/2 Cup Grated Carrots
1/2 Cup Grated Onions
1 Teaspoon Fresh Thyme
1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
1 Teaspoon Parsley (finely chopped)
1/4 Teaspoon Chilli Powder
1/4 Cup Crackers (crushed fine)
1 Large Egg
1/2 Cup White Wine (chardonnay)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Use the olive oil to lightly oil an 8×8″ square baking dish.
In a large bowl thoroughly mix all of the ingredients except for the Parmesan cheese and olive oil.
Pull a handful (about 1/2 cup) of the turkey mixture and toss back and forth in your hands to form a ball. The ball should form rather easily.
Once the meatball is formed, place it in the baking dish.
After all of the meatballs are in the dish, cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes.
Remove the meatballs from the oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
