Turkey Meatballs with Mushroom Gravy

I had some leftover Pesto Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes from Easter dinner and ground turkey calling my name! So stinking good! Yummy Pesto Caprese Salad and Garlic Lemon Asparagus rounded out the meal.


1 lb Ground Turkey

1 large Egg

½ cup Breadcrumbs

¼ cup Onion; minced

2 cloves Garlic; minced

¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Italian Herbs

Salt and Pepper to taste


½ lb Mushrooms; sliced

½ cup Onion; chopped

2 cups Turkey Broth

½ teaspoon Garlic Powder

¼ teaspoon Thyme

½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika

Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes

1 teaspoon Cornstarch

1 Tablespoon Water

Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Add the ground turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic and seasonings to a large bowl. Mix until combined, then cover and chill for 20 minutes
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F and form the meat mixture into 12 golf ball sized meatballs. 
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Sear the meatballs on all sides then transfer to a baking sheet. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 165°F; about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, add the mushrooms and onions to the skillet and sauté until tender. Pour in the broth and seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water. Pour the slurry into the skillet and stir until thickened. 
  5. Add the meatballs back into the skillet and toss to coat. Serve over mashed potatoes or pasta.
  6. Enjoy!
