Love these meatballs! Flavorful and moist. It almost converted me to a turkey lover. This is a keeper!!
I’m so glad you like them Rocky!
We love them! And my kids hate mushrooms but they have no idea they are in there. The flavour is amazing. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you
My family loves these meatballs! My husband has celiac disease, and this is one dish he can eat that he loves. We eat them plain with no sauce because they are that good! To save some time and labor to do other things in the kitchen, I put them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees and they turn out just as good. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
These came out perfect – doubles the batch and froze half of them. They were tasty, moist and big hit. I would make again.
I love this recipe but I’d really like to know the nutritional values. We are following the KETO diet and those values are important. Is there a nutrition calculator somewhere? Thanks for the recipe.
Hi, Ken! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one. Thanks!
Excellent flavor and moistness!
I made these last night. I wish I had doubled the recipe. The mushrooms made them light and moist. I also added red pepper flakes. Great recipe.
I’m so glad you liked them Claudia! Yes the mushrooms really do help.
Is there any reason why these couldn’t be frozen (raw or cooked)?
Hi Jeanne, I don’t see why they couldn’t be frozen raw or cooked. They should freeze fine!
These look so yummy! ….Is there anyway I can substitute the mushrooms for something else? I do not eat mushrooms. I have all my ingredients,but again I want to leave out the mushrooms. Your reply will be appreciated. Thank You! :-)
Hi Sheila, yes, you can use shredded zucchini. That works too! Use about a cup of shredded zucchini.
Would you have to squeeze the water out of the zucchini
I am looking for a easy receipe for swedish meatballs using ground turkey. Any suggestions?
You could try using ground turkey in our Swedish meatball recipe. If you do, I suggest adding in some finely chopped mushrooms and a little mayo into the meatball mixture to help keep the meatballs moist. Turkey meatballs tend to dry out.
Is there something you could substitute for the mayo, or is it better to just leave it out if you don’t want to use it?
Hi Emily, the mayo does two things. Mayo is basically egg and olive or vegetable oil. The egg in the mayo acts as a binder and the oil helps add a little fat to the lean turkey. So, if you don’t want to use mayo, then beat an egg, and use about half of it (a tablespoon’s worth) in the mixture. Add a teaspoon of olive oil too.
Your turkey meatballs were wonderful. I served the meatballs with your rich sauce and sprinkled parmesan cheese on top. To compliment the meatballs I served a pear salad with a poppyseed dressing along with a crusty sour dough roll. My husband loved the dinner and I plan to make it again. Thank you!
Delicious – repeat recipe. It is a treasure to have such a recipe that is gluten-free for many in our family who have celiac. They love these meatballs, which tends to be a food item they typically avoid because most include wheat. Thank you for this – and many other recipes.
I’ve made these wonderful meatballs several times. It is now my go-to recipe. The lemon zest absolutely completes them. Love the flavor and moist texture. The sauce is also delicious, but I add a little Pinot noir to the sauce in addition to the balsamic. I serve them with roasted spaghetti squash for me and lemon pappardelle noddles for my husband. We’re both in heaven. I also love your stuffed zucchini recipe. Thanks for such simple tasty recipes. Love your site so much.
I just loved these meatballs. I added one small grated zucchini to the mushrooms while they were cooking down. Nobody would’ve ever know there was a green veggie in there unless I told them, and I did tell. I made these in advance, and then reheated them with some Archer Farms Koren Style BBQ Sauce (the very best of its kind), and served it with Jasmine rice and steamed broccoli. It was a fantastic, healthy dinner. Thanks for the recipe!
These meatballs made me very happy tonight!! My 2 yr old has an egg allergy so I used vegan mayonnaise. Followed the rest exactly, and they were so delicious!! My husband piled them on a hoagie with marinara sauce for a meatball sub. I put a few in the freezer to see how they do for busy nights.
Elise, thank you again for a wonderful recipe. I enjoy mince turkey and this recipe is fantastic. So much flavour and easy to make. Your website is full of great recipes I have cooked and enjoyed. :)
These were a big hit with my non-meatball-loving, non-mushroom fan family! Moist and delicious! Another hit, thanks!And I too live with a pacemaker – it saved my life and I am ever grateful. Give your Dad a hug! Linda
Will do, thanks Linda!
Every since you posted this recipe, I have been going back to it for so many reasons! Both the meatballs and the sauce are so good exactly as set-down. It brings full flavor to ground turkey. I usually use soy sauce in place of salt when working with ground turkey. But, I really like this recipe for a change. The herbes de Provence has been a bit like finding a long lost relative! I have been using it for steamed Brussels sprouts, as I used to do many moons ago. It needs a gentle hand as one experiments, but it is so worth the effort (not to mention the price) to finding how much is right for you.
I just made these and they are delicious. I love the texture, the taste and the fact that they have no bread in them! Made the sauce too and dinner was a big hit. Thanks! Hope your Dad continues to do well and gets to enjoy this dish often !
