Turkey Pepper Jack Meatballs

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.

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!

  1. Oh yum! My family loves meatballs and pepper jack, but they don't care for ground turkey. I wonder if they would even notice it under the sauce and cheese? Looks great to me!
