Pesto Baked Turkey Meatballs
Ya'll know I can't fry a meatball to save my life, so these baked turkey meatballs made with pesto sauce and mozzarella cheese were the perfect combination of easy and a bit fancy.
1 1/2 pounds Ground Turkey
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Dried Basil
1 cup Pesto
2/3 cup Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat oven to 400°.
In a large bowl, combine Turkey, Egg, Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Dried Basil.
Use your hands to combine this mixture thoroughly.
Take 1/4 cup of the Pesto and spread a thin layer along the bottom of a 10x10 square baking dish.
Form 16 meatballs by taking 2 tablespoons of the turkey mixture for each meatball.
Arrange the 16 meatballs in the baking dish.
Pour the remaining 3/4 cup of Pesto over the meatballs ensuring each one is covered.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and top with the Mozzarella Cheese.
Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Allow to cool slightly and serve with noodles or veggies.
