How to make Baked whole30 garlic herb turkey meatballs


For meatballs:

* 2 pounds ground dark meat turkey

* 2 eggs

* 1/2 cup finely diced onion

* 4 cloves of garlic, chopped

* 2 tablespoons tomato paste

* 2 tablespoons coconut aminos

* 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

* 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

* 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

* 2 Tbs coconut flour (you may need to add a little more if you are using the plastic tube style ground turkey meat)

* 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

* 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the garlic herb ghee:

* 1/3 cup ghee or olive oil

* 2 cloves garlic, chopped

* 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

* juice of 1/2 a lemon – about 1 tablespoon

* pinch of chili flakes (optional)

* 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

* black pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.

Add all ingredients for meatballs to a large bowl and mix thoroughly to combine.

Grab a small bowl of water or olive oil and wet your hands. Form mixture into 12 even sized 1 1/2 inch meatballs and space evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

Spray or brush each one with avocado or olive oil.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.

While meatballs are baking, gently warm ghee or olive oil, garlic, parley, lemon juice, chili flakes, sea salt, and black pepper in a small sauce pan over medium low heat until warm and garlic is aromatic.

Remove meatballs from the oven and drain extra fat from the pan with a spoon if necessary.

Drizzle with lemon garlic mixture and return to the oven to bake for 3-5 minutes more.

Serve and enjoy!
