I have never been a fan of Meatballs. I made these now i am hooked. Eat them with white or brown rice or put them in your favorite Pasta Sauce. ENJOY!


1/2 lb ground turkey
1/2 lb of ground pork
1 lb of lean ground beef ( feel free to use Veal if you like)
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup of milk
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of flat leaf parsley
2 teaspoons of Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 extra large egg, beaten.
3/4 cup warm water


Add the milk to the bread crumbs set aside for 5-10 minutes until the bread crumbs absorb the milk.

Place the ground meats, the bread crumb, parsley, Parmesan, salt, pepper, nutmeg, egg, and 3/4 cup warm water in a bowl. Combine very lightly with a fork. Using your hands, lightly form the mixture into 2-inch meatballs. You will have 14 to 16 meatballs.

Preheat the oven at 375 F.

Place on baking pans and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until done- if you're not sure, cut one in half to check. Do not overcook or they will be very dry. Once cooked let them sit for 5 minutes and enjoy.

They can be kept in the freezer up to a month and again feel free to add them to your favorite pasta sauce.
