Back on the Horse

Its never too late for a fresh start, right? So here's mine... after more than two months, I'm going to use this summer to jump back and continue telling you "What We Are Eating".

A week or so ago, my good friend Angel from college stopped by for a night (and an exciting night it was, one that brought us to the E.R. but not because of this recipe, I assure you). Before the excitement, I suggested we make dinner together, since that is something I love to do with friends, and it makes the eating that much more meaningful.  It is completely sharing a meal.  We ate a simple meal of spaghetti and meatballs, but simple does not mean it wasn't absolutely delicious.

Turkey Meatballs
Liberally adapted from Rachael Ray on the Food Network
1 1/3 pound ground turkey
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
olive oil to drizzle

Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit.

Mix all ingredients except olive oil. Using a small ice cream scoop, form into 18-24 meatballs, place on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Bake 20 minutes or until cooked through.

If using in a sauce for pasta or as an appetizer, simmer baked meatballs in sauce for about 20 minutes.

  1. I like it when you share what you thought of the recipe. Some of them you share what you made and/or why you made it, but not always what you thought about it, etc. Just a suggestion... :)
