Mediterranean Turkey Meatballs

So over the last few months, I've been a part of an awesome little work idea, a lunch club. Once a month, I cook for about 12 people. I love it. I love cooking for people. And it gives me a chance to cook for others. 

This month, I decided to cook a meal that was very simple for everyone. I made my basil pesto, baked tomatoes and potatoes with lavender salt, kale salad with an orange champagne vinaigrette, and tzatziki. And these Mediterranean meatballs.

These meatballs are made from turkey, with plenty of herbs, they're healthy and delicious. As one of my friends said, these are perfect summer meatballs. And I think they're more like delicious little Mediterranean sliders. These would be great with tzatziki, on their own, or with vegetables. I hope that you enjoy these, as they were a recipe that turned out well.  

Ingredients (makes 36 meatballs and they would freeze well)
2 mediums onions minced
2 lbs ground turkey breast
1 lb ground turkey meat
2 C panko
5 eggs
1/4 C minced mint
1/4 C minced dill
1 t garam marsala
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper

Mince the onions.

Mince the dill and pepper, and combine all of the ingredients with your hands.

Heat the oven to 350° and line a 9x13 baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. 

Roll the mixture into 2-3" patties and place on the parchment paper. 

Bake for 22 minutes and either freeze or serve immediately.
