Mozzarella-stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs
- Servings: 36
|3 lbs||Ground Turkey|
|1 cup||Onion, finely chopped|
|4||Garlic Cloves, minced|
|1 cup||Bread Crumbs, italian style|
|½ cup||Parmigiano-reggiano Cheese, grated|
|½ cup||Flat-leaf Parsley, chopped|
|2 tsp||Freshly Ground Pepper|
|1 lb||Fresh Mozzarella, cut into 36 cubes|
|Extra Virgin Olive Oil To Drizzle Over Meatballs|
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, place ground turkey, chopped onion, minced garlic, egg, bread crumbs, cheese, pesto, chopped parsley, milk, salt and pepper. Mix until combined. Form turkey mixture into meatballs, approximately 1 3/4 inch in diameter. Stuff a mozzarella cheese cube into each meatball and seal the meat around the cheese so it can't leak out. Arrange on a nonstick baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
Serve with a marinara dipping sauce if you want!
