Turkey Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 bread slices
  • ½ small onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped rosemary
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil


  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ small onion finely chopped
  • ½ cup finely chopped mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped rosemary
  • 3 cup chicken stock or half stock or half water
  • salt and pepper


Making Turkey Meatballs

  • Cut bread slices into large pieces. Pulse them in a blender or food processor to make them into crumbs.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine ground turkey, fresh bread crumbs, onion, parsley, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper. Mix everything well.
  • Roughly divide the mixture into 20 parts and form them into small meatballs (see helpful tips or notes).
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Place meatballs keeping some distance in between
  • Cover the pan and cook for about 3 minutes. Flip the meatballs, cover and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Once done take them out

Making Gravy

  • In the same pan add garlic, onion, and mushrooms. Cook them for 3-4 minutes. Add more oil if necessary.
  • Then add flour and cook the mixture for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Now slowly add chicken stock. Simultaneously mix continuously using a whisk.
  • Bring mixture to boil. Cover and cook the gravy on low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Finally add meatballs, herbs, salt, and pepper. Mix well, cover and cook for about one minute.
  • Take it out from the heat and keep covered until serving.


  1. You can also use all-purpose flour for making gravy instead of whole wheat flour
  2. If you are using a non-stick frying pan or skillet then make sure to use silicone whisk to prevent scratching.
  3. Use metal cookie scoop or meatball maker to divide the ground turkey mixture and make uniform sized meatballs
