Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine ground turkey, chicken sausage, bread crumbs, basil, milk, garlic, Parmesan cheese, kosher salt, and black pepper in a bowl; mix gently with a fork. Drop mixture, about 1 1/4-inch diameter per meatball, onto the prepared baking sheet using a spoon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Substitute 2 teaspoons garlic powder for the minced garlic, if desired.

You can use 1 and 1/4 pounds of whatever ground meat you prefer rather than the ground turkey mixed with sausage. You could also try different spices.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I made this recipe and it was amazing. The only changes I made was I left out the chicken sausage and for bread crumbs I used Cheerios because they are a fantastic gluten free substitute for bread crumbs!! Just pop them in the blender and done. Read More

Very good for turkey meatballs! I can't get fresh chicken sausage in my area and subbed with Italian Sausage (used 1 lb ground turkey 1/2 lb italian sausage) omitted the egg and milk due to dietary restrictions but the meatballs held up fine and were not dry or falling apart. The smell of the meat mixture seemed slightly off to me and I added a tad more basil and parsley (dried as that's what I had on hand; flavor of chicken sausage varies and my italian sausage was weak in seasonings). Really enjoyed these in comparison to straight turkey meatballs. The sausage seems to add the lack of fat along with additional flavor whereas straight ground turkey meatballs tends to be on the dry side and requires more seasoning. I added these meatballs to Basic Marinara for the Instant Pot by Bren and it was an excellent spaghetti and meatballs dinner! Will use these going forward for turkey meatballs! Thanks for the recipe Olivia! Read More

Very flavorful! The foil needs extra cooking spray because meatballs don't have much grease & mine stuck. I also recommend turning meatballs so they can brown on 2 sides. Read More

For the family that isn't gluten-free this recipe works well with panko bread crumbs. Read More

These are sooooo good. The sausage really gives it that kick to make them Super Meatballs. The mixture stays moist and yet still holds together. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
