Turkey Meatballs | You've Got Meal!

We stopped at this recipe one of these day just before our cooking inspiration was close to zero. You know those days when you have no special cravings, no idea what to cook and you just stare at your fridge and freezer, but no option satisfies you.

We got lucky when we spotted a large piece of turkey breast in the freezer. Turkey meat is a nice and lean meat that is very versatile. If you find the meat dull and you have a bigger piece it is a great idea to grind it or part of it for meatballs or burgers to get a great flavor. It is easier to add the flavor you want in meatballs or burgers.

That being said, we used about 600 grams of ground turkey and made some nice meatballs and served them with mashed sweet potatoes and some pickled cauliflower.

You will need:

  • 600 g ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped or grated
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 handful chopped fresh parsley
For the mashed sweet potatoes:
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 medium potatoes (basically you need to have a 50/50 ratio of potatoes and sweet potatoes)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 50 g butter
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

  1. Mix all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl and form balls from about 1 tbsp of composition.
  2. Heat 2-3 tbsp olive oil in a skillet and fry the meatballs on all sides, about 7 minutes , until brown.
  3. You can take them out on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  4. For the mash, boil the potatoes, mash them, add the butter, ginger and the seasoning and mix well.
