I made these turkey meatballs just to try something a little different. They turned out fantastically and are now a household favorite.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and sear on all sides until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking tray.

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

Cook's Note:

You can form mixture into smaller meatballs, if you prefer. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
