Here's another great meatball recipe, this time using ground turkey, pepper jack and some marinara sauce.
I know that anytime I make meatballs, there are never any leftover. It has to be one of the family's favorites.
I knew I wanted to make them but I didn't necessarily want the usual spaghetti and tomato sauce and since I had a jar of marinara in the pantry and some ground turkey in the freezer, I decided to go with that.
These were so delicious, I'll have to make them again soon.
Turkey Pepper Jack Meatballs
2 pounds ground turkey
half a small onion, finely diced
1 garlic clove, finely diced
salt and pepper
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
sliced pepper jack cheese
In a bowl, combine turkey, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, breadcrumbs, eggs, oregano and the shredded pepper jack cheese. Mix well, shape into small meatballs and place on a baking sheet. Top with a tablespoon of marinara sauce.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove from oven. Cut a slice of pepper jack cheese into 4 pieces, and top each meatball with one of the little pieces of cheese.
Pop under the broiler for a few minutes until melted. Enjoy!
