Baked Turkey Meatballs

So I know this picture is not great, but these meatballs are awesome! They are moist and flavorful. We ate ours as a main dish with two vegetable sides but they could easily be serving over spaghetti squash as a one bowl meal. To form the balls I just used a small ice cream scoop (1 inch ball size) so I did not have to roll them all by hand. It worked out perfect and was super fast. This made enough meatballs to cook them in two batches and have leftovers. Do not be overwhelmed by the ingredient list. This is a simple, one bowl recipe.

You may have noticed I am posting recipes less often. We are at a very busy time in our lives with Evan nearing graduation so time has been more rare. I have been relying on the good old recipe box more and creating my own recipes less often. Does anyone know what I mean? All this to say please don't go away... stay tuned for more like a weekly delicious recipe post (much like the one here).
