To make this a completely healthy meal, serve over spaghetti squash rather than pasta!
Preheat oven to 450.
Stir together oatmeal and next 12 ingredients (through nutmeg). Combine the ground turkey with the bread crumb mixture. Stir together with a fork.
Use a cookie dropper, portioning scoop, or two spoons and shape the meat mixture into balls (about 2").
Coat a baking sheet (with sides) with nonstick spray. Space meatballs on tray so they're not crowded or touching.
Cover bottom of pan with beef broth. Bake for 25 minutes or until the meatballs are just cooked through.
no01idea 10m agoAlmost a year later and we make this recipe at least 3 times a month. We make it into Meatballs, hamburgers (husband won't eat any other hamburger now), and meatloaf.
mmajoli 1y agoI used a cookie dropper to do the portions. The mixture seemed runny but after cooking in the oven they turned out firm and fabulous. Great recipe, I also substituted milk with rice milk and used only breadcrumbs and no oat. Will definitely do it again.
no01idea 2y agoThis is my new go to meatball recipe. The first time I made it just as the recipe states, and it was not runny and made perfect meatballs and were nice and juicy, the second time I read reviews and decided to add more breadcrumbs, and to my family they were a little dry. FYI, makes a GREAT turkey burger (just cook in patty shape in oven).
Mistikaldarkhope 2y agoI read the reviews prior to making these and I took the advice of others. I didn't add the 1/2 cup of beef broth to the meatballs but I did add an additional 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs. I did not have 2 lbs of turkey so I made mine 1/2 turkey and 1/2 ground beef. They were fantastic! The entire family loved them. The fresh parsley is a must. It added so much flavor. We will definitely make these again.
trainguy 2y agoI should have put more bread crumbs in to firm them up. when I baked them they turned into meat "patties" so I chopped them up and added them to the sauce. I also used Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning and salad dressing mix instead of parmesan. All of this made a fantastic spaghetti sauce, my family said it was the best ever.
missjess87 3y agoI make this all the time. You can sub out the dairy for almond or soy milk and its amazing!!
jillrussack 3y agoThe recipe as follows was too watery so I added about 3/4 cup more breadcrumbs. I also did not have beef broth so I used one cup of chicken broth and a splash of soy sauce. I baked them in a marinara sauce layer for 25 minutes...came out DELICIOUS. I may use 1/2 cup of broth next time so I can use less breadcrumb but overall, these were great!
srbodlak 3y agoOh yeah, these ARE good! With the one cup of bread crumbs in addition to the oatmeal, they shaped up nicely. I also made a meatloaf with part of the meat, which baked about 35 minutes.
erikawasielewski 3y agoThe flavor is great on these! However, mine were really loose. I ended up with patties instead of balls because there was no way to shape them. But because they are so tasty I plan to make again. Thanks!
