  • canola oil for greasing the baking sheet
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup very finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey*


  • Preheat oven to 450° F. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with canola oil.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, onion, garlic, Panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir with a fork to mix.
  • Add the ground turkey and mix until just combined.
  • Use your hands to shape the meat mixture into 1 ½-inch meatballs and place on the greased baking sheet.
  • Bake meatballs for 10-14 minutes, until they are cooked through. Meatballs should register 165° F in the center when measured with an instant read thermometer. Serve meatballs with spaghetti and marinara sauce, or as desired.



  • For best results, use ground turkey with a little bit of fat in it, such as 93% lean. Using 99% lean ground turkey may make the meatballs dry.
  • Baked meatballs may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
