Baked Turkey Meatballs With Tomato Sauce
I always like to make a variety of dishes for dinner, It is usually something new and pretty complicated, but there are some days when I don’t have a power or time for anything. In this case, I always keep at least 5-6 recipes in my head, which will undoubtedly turn out delicious and will not take me half a day.
My relationship with meatballs has developed from the very first time, and regardless of mood, circumstances or weather, I make them good.
I try to use different types of proteins in my recipes, but the most delicious once turn out with turkey, so today I will tell you in detail about my most foolproof and tasty method.
Some recipes for meatballs call for breadcrumbs, but I use fresh bread without crust. I just grind it in a blender.
Ideally, there should be very little bread, just enough for ground turkey to come together.

In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, parmesan, bread, oregano, egg, 1 chopped clove of garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
Mix well and start rolling balls about 3-4 cm in diameter.
Lay the meatballs on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
