Turkey Meatballs (FREEZER MEAL)

Don't waste your money on store-bought frozen meatballs. These will be a staple in your freezer cooking menu. (Sorry, I'll add pictures next time I make them).

Turkey Meatballs

Ingredients

1 small onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large egg
1/4-1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
3 tablespoons ketchup
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves (or 1 Tbs dried)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound ground turkey

To assemble:

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well. (Start with the 1/4 cup breadcrumbs and if it's too wet when you mix it all together, add another 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs).

Using a medium scoop or a tablespoon, scoop some of the mixture and roll into balls.

Place the raw meatballs on a cookie sheet and freeze.

Once frozen, put in labeled Ziploc bag.

To reheat:

Take out the desired number of meatballs and let them defrost on a plate in the fridge.

Once defrosted, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes, turning halfway through.

Add them to your favorite spaghetti sauce, toss with pasta, and dinner is served! Also makes great Meatball Subs!

I love reading your blogs on Freezer cooking. What could I use in place of the parmesan? I am allergic to aged cheese.
My family loved the chicken crescent bundles!
