Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Meatballs

I have always loved meatballs.  But, now that I am trying to eat healthier, I cut back on eating red meat like ground beef.  This turkey meatball recipe has all the great taste of an Italian meatball without all the guilt.  The sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese add a wonderful flavor to this dish.


  • 1/4 cup  Plain Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped Italian, flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg, beaten (or egg substitute)
  • 1 tablespoon skim milk
  • 3/4 pound lean ground turkey



  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, brown breadcrumbs with butter until golden.  This should take about 8 minutes.  After breadcrumbs have cooled, combine with tomatoes, parsley, garlic, Parmesan, and salt in a large bowl.  Mix with beaten egg and milk.  Add ground turkey to mixture.  Use hands to combine the ingredients together.


3.  Form the meat mixture into medium-sized balls and arrange on a large baking sheet.  Bake for about 25-28 minutes. Turn meatballs over half through cook time.

Serve with your favorite pasta and sauce.  And Enjoy!
