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.

Pro Tip:

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.


Serving size:

About 12 medium meatballs


  • 550 grams of ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 30 grams of bread crushed in a blender

  • Half onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 300 ml of tomatoes in its own juice (preferably San Marzano)

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.

Make the sauce. In a frying pan fry the finely chopped onion until soft. Add chopped garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.

Reduce heat to medium, add wine and cook stirring, 2-5 minutes or until the wine is reduced by half.

Add the tomatoes, cook for 5-7 minutes, add salt and set aside.

When the meatballs are ready, mix them with the sauce and serve with freshly chopped chives.
