Gluten-Free Turkey Meatballs
These gluten-free meatballs are versatile, flavorful and completely delicious! Serve with tomato sauce and pasta, BBQ sauce, or as Swedish meatballs. They also freeze great for homemade gluten-free frozen meatballs to have on hand to add to your favorite dishes!
Servings 8 servings
For the meatballs:
- 2 pounds ground turkey I use 93/7
- 1 cup gluten-free panko breadcrumbs
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or foil sprayed with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, add all the ingredients. Mix with your hands or a spatula to evenly combine.
Shape the meatballs. I like to use a small cookie scoop to measure out even sizes then roll them into round balls with slightly wet hands. Place the shaped meatballs onto the prepared pan and brush with a little more olive oil if desired.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and cooked through. Add to your favorite sauce or let the meatballs cool to freeze for later.
TO COOK FROM FROZEN: Place the meatballs in a microwave safe bowl and defrost slightly before adding to your favorite sauce.
Use 93% lean/7% fat ground turkey instead of 99% lean/1% fat for meatballs with delicious flavor and texture.
I prefer using onion powder and garlic powder for flavor rather than grated onion and garlic because of the texture.
Any kind of gluten-free breadcrumbs will work. I like this brand.
TO FREEZE: Let cool completely then transfer to a resealable bag. Frozen meatballs will keep for up to 3 months.
