Ingredients
  

  • 450 grams ground turkey or any ground meat you love
  • 1 medium or large egg
  • salt pepper, italian seasoning to taste
  • 1/3-1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs — any you love start with 1/3 cup and see if you need more
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmigiano

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl add all of the ingredients and mix everything together with clean hands. In Bulgaria we always wet our hands a little bit when we make meatballs so that nothing sticks.
  • Roll 12 to 13 equal size meatballs or you can make them as big or small as you like.
  • Place them on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper and bake @ 400F for 20 to 25 minutes depending on your oven. Mine took 25 minutes. Enjoy.

Notes

You can definitely use seasoned almond flour is a binder if you are gluten-free or you can even use gluten-free breadcrumbs which are available in most grocery stores. Feel free to use any seasonings you love and grated mozzarella would be amazing in here as well. My cauliflower mash is on my website or on my Reels tab. Feel free to use ground chicken or any ground meat you like. If you make them into smaller meatballs the baking time will be less ( 15-20 min ). I food processed stale white bread into crumbs and added fresh parm to make my own breadcrumbs but feel free to use anything you like

  1. Loved these! Second time I made them, I substituted half the breadcrumbs for crushed crispy jalapeño pieces from Trader Joe’s. Also skipped Italian seasoning and did garlic and onion powder. Gave them a little kick! Will be making these on Sunday’s for meal prep often!
