I’m giving out big secrets to the internet today with this recipe. Well, maybe it’s not really a secret, but it’s been a cherished recipe in my family for decades (and continues to be). My grandmother is an Italian woman from New York – let’s preface this with that. Her cooking is ridiculously good and has inspired me to get creative in the kitchen my entire life.
Her turkey meatballs were always one of my favorite things she made when I was growing up. They are delicious over mashed potatoes (pictured), in red sauce over some pasta, or even chilled on their own as a mid-day protein snack! Seriously, these things are just so damn delicious. So of course I had to snag this recipe from her.
Cooking these bad boys are as easy and mixing a bunch of ingredients together, then popping them into the broiler until they turn brown and are cooked through. I always can’t help but sneak one off the baking sheet to “taste test” while they’re still hot, which always managed to burn my tongue. Happens every time, but these are so good I can’t wait for them to cool off before tasting them. For reals. Meatball crack over here, guys.
I make these meatballs several times a year – not are they just easy, delicious and versatile, but also they will also impress anyone who eats them. Impress some people with you cooking. Make them some meatballs. They might just become one of your family recipes after you try it….
