These were amazing! Followed exactly.What’s equally amazing is that I could eat 500 of them because the carbs are totally gone!Thank you!
I don’t eat red meat but will eat turkey. My husband usually won’t eat turkey meatballs because he’s a beef eater, but we both absolutely love this recipe.
Only had veganaise on hand, so threw in an egg. Then they were a bit wet, so added panko. Very tasty.
these are sooo good!! i’ve never commented on or rated a recipe I’ve made from an online recipe, but had to for these! i’ve made many turkey meatball recipes & this one is the best. totally cannot tell there are mushrooms in them & these definitely do not need an egg or breadcrumbs to help bind them. i didn’t have any balsamic vinegar, so I subbed 1/4 tea sherry vin & 1/4 tea Worcestershire sauce. Still turned out so good!
Amazing meatballs! Just made them. If your turkey mixture is very “wet”, use a little scoop to drop the into the frying oil. They come together nicely as they cook. Fabulous by themselves or in the tomato sauce.
Very moist and delicious! I used jarred tomato sauce to cut back on prep time.
Really good, but a bit more time consuming with all the chopping than I was expecting. My ground turkey was really soft and wet (Costco) so with the wet mushrooms, they were hard to form and ended up being meat lumps LOL. We ate about a third of them with some good Rao’s marinara, and saving the rest for another use.
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.
