These delicious turkey and mushroom meatballs are so juicy, tender, and unbelievably flavorful. These turkey meatballs are healthy because they are a blend of mushrooms and turkey which keeps these meatballs juicy and full of 'meaty' flavor. Enjoy!


  • 1 lb Mushrooms, cleaned with stems removed
  • 5 cloves of Garlic
  • 2.5 ounces Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 White onion, cut into long strips to fit into the food processor
  • 1 lb 99% Lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 3/4 cup Bread crumbs
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with tinfoil and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. In a food processor, using the cheese grater blade, shred the mushrooms, garlic, onion, and parmesan.
  3. Transfer the shredded ingredients to a bowl and add the ground turkey, milk, bread crumbs, egg, parsley, and seasonings. Using your hands, mix all ingredients together until well combined.
  4. Shape each meatball into 1 1/2in - 2in sized pieces, placing each turkey and mushroom meatball onto the baking sheet. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes, ensuring the meatballs reach an internal temperature of 165°F. Enjoy!


  • If you don't have a food processor with a cheese grater blade, you can shred the ingredients with a traditional cheese grater or finely chopped with a knife.
  • Serve meatballs with a jar of your favorite marinara sauce, fresh cooked pasta or polenta, and optional freshly grated parmesan cheese and chopped parsley.
