Meatballs!

I’m posting my usual meatball recipe today so I can find it again when I need it!

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • cooked bacon (between 1/4-1/2 cup when chopped)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (I save heels for this)
  • fresh basil if available
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • other seasoning, as desired

Mix together; shape into small balls and bake at 400 degrees F until cooked through.  Overcooking makes dry meatballs!

Yield: about 60 small meatballs
