Making the Meatballs
This turkey meatball recipe is so easy and simple! I make them with pantry staples – plain bread crumbs, egg, herbs and grated onion. The grated onion is my secret to the juiciest meatballs ever! Not only does the onion add lots of great flavor, it also adds extra moisture, which is always needed when cooking turkey. You can also use ground chicken, pork or beef for this recipe. When mixing all the ingredients together, mix just until they’re well combined. Overmixing the meatball mixture can cause them to be more dense and heavy.
After shaping the meatballs, preheat a large saute pan and fry them all over on medium-high heat. This recipe step usually takes about 7 to 8 minutes. The meatballs need to be browned all over but not cooked all the way through. They will finish cooking in the sauce.
Creamy Mushroom Sauce
You will love this creamy mushroom sauce that goes with the turkey meatballs! It’s made with mushrooms, shallots, garlic, white wine and milk. Make this sauce in the same pan as the meatballs for the best flavor! I like to sauté the mushrooms and shallot in melted butter for even more flavor. The white wine adds balancing acidity to the sauce, making it even more delicious! Don’t want to use wine? Add a few tablespoons of fresh lemon juice instead!
After returning the meatballs to the pan, continue simmering the mushroom sauce for 10 minutes on medium heat. As the sauce cooks, it will thicken and it will continue to thicken even more once removed from heat.
These juicy turkey meatballs can be enjoyed in a few different ways. My personal favorite, and my husband’s favorite, is over a bed of creamy butter mashed potatoes! I have a separate video recipe for these mashed potatoes and you’re going to love it! You can also enjoy these with steamed with rice or even pasta such as elbow macaron or wide egg noodles. Whichever way you choose to enjoy them, these meatballs are bound to become a family favorite!
