Dave’s Turkey Meatballs

Monday, March 19th, 2012

OK.  So we can’t give you the Cavallaro family spaghetti sauce recipe.  That’s TOP SECRET.  🙂  But these are the meatballs that Dave makes with them, and they are AWESOME.  We don’t ever make them with beef anymore…


1/4 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
2 Tbs milk
2 eggs
2 tsp parsley
2 tsp garlic powder
pepper to taste
1 lb ground turkey (not leaner than 93%)
Pam (or other cooking spray)


Cover a pan with foil.  Spray with Pam.  Set aside.  Heat oven to 350.

In a large bowl stir together breadcrumbs and milk.  The key to the whole recipe is to not overwork/over mix.

Add two eggs and mix until just combined.

Add ground turkey and spices.  Mix until just combined.

Roll into meatballs around 1.5 – 2 inches in diameter. Put on prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes.

Once done, drop meatballs into your sauce and enjoy!
