Yield: About 20 meatballs


  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground pepper
  • Olive oil or vegetable oil


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet (enough to coat just the bottom of skillet). Add onion and stir briefly, until it's almost yellow. Add red pepper, green pepper and fry for 2 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 2 minutes, then remove from stove to cool. Let cool for 10 minutes.

  2. Place flour on a large plate (for ease in creating the balls). With a wooden spoon, mix together turkey, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. Form a tablespoon size of the turkey mixture in the shape of ball. Place each meatball in skillet and fry until slightly brown. Slightly press the center of each meatball to make sure the center cooks.

  3. Arrange on serving platter. Sprinkle ground pepper over top of each.

This recipe looks good and I want to make them. However, your site needs to design a more printer-friendly base for recipes....the recipes should be isolated so all the other stuff on the page doesn't print out.
