My Favorite Healthy Meatballs

I am back from my hiatus or at least for this week I am.

Surprisingly, this was my FIRST time to make meatballs! I was shocked at how easy it was to make these. I incorporated these meatballs into a spaghetti squash dish but these would also make great appetizers too. Of course, I made these healthy but you would never know because they were filled with flavor.

Adapted from Wishful Chef
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 egg
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely diced white onion or shallot
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
1 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a sheet pan with nonstick spray.
In a bowl, mix all ingredients together.
 It is easiest to just mix the ingredients with your hands! 
Roll into  about 20 meatballs and place on a pan. 
Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes or until cooked through and not pink in the middle.
I promise if I can make these, you can too! Be sure to check back tomorrow for the best spaghetti squash casserole!
