  • Using a scoop, make the meatballs. 
  • Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a pan and sear a batch of meatballs until fully cooked, move them around to make sure they're cooked on all sides. Transfer them to a plate and cook the rest. Set the cooked turkey meatballs aside.

  • Serve with homemade white rice


You can also bake the turkey meatballs. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make the meatballs using a scoop and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until they're fully cooked.
