Scale

Ingredients

Meatballs

  • 2 pounds ground turkey, dark meat is preferred
  • 1 small onion (or half of a large) – 1 cup diced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (Morton brand – adjust for by half for table salt)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (or 2 Tbsp toum)

  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (or plain traditional breadcrumbs)

Salad Mix


Instructions

Meatballs

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  • In a large bowl add your ground turkey and set aside.
  • In a small non-stick pan add your olive oil and diced onions. Cook over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes, add in your Italian seasoning, pepper and salt.
  • Allow mixture to cook for another 3-4 minutes until onions are translucent. Finally add in your minced garlic (or toum) in the last minute. Set aside to cool.
  • Add in your feta, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, eggs and panko to your ground turkey. Mix to combine well.
  • Once onion mixture is cooled, add to your turkey mixture and mix well. See note below to taste seasoning – add additional salt if needed.*
  • Form your meatballs using cookie scoop, about 1.5″ in diameter and place on parchment lined sheet pan. You should have about 45 meatballs total and spread out on 2 sheet pans.
  • Bake in upper 1/3 of pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove and let come to room temperature.

Salad

  1. Remove greens from Earthbound Farm Organic Honey Mustard Kit and place in large bowl.
  2. Empty dressing and mix to combine well.
  3. Plate greens on a platter/plate, top with included dried cranberries and slivered almonds and finally a few meatballs.
  4. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Be sure to let your onion mixture cool down before adding to the ground turkey and eggs. We don’t to cook the eggs or meat too early!
  • To test for flavor and saltiness of your meat, grab a small piece and throw it into a pan to cook quickly or heat in microwave for 20-30 second until cooked. Sample and know if you need to add more salt to your mixture.
  • It’s always better to UNDER salt than over salt. Different brands and types of salt will vary in saltiness. I prefer using Kosher salt over table salt – you will use a bit more but have a less salty flavor.
