Turkey and Stuffing Balls Ingredients
- 2 teaspoons oil
- 1 pound of ground turkey meat
- ¼ cup onion, chopped
- ¼ cup celery, chopped
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ teaspoon ground sage
- 1 packet of stuffing (we used Stove Top)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of water
Making Turkey and Stuffing Balls
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add in turkey meat. Brown 5-7 minutes, drain if necessary. Add in onion, celery, salt, pepper and sage. Continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until vegetables become tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, add in stuffing, eggs, and water. Mix together. Gently fold in meat.
Then, create quarter cup amounts of balls. Add balls to grease lined oven pans. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until a golden color.
Allow balls to rest for a few minutes before serving, so to not have them break.
That is it! Pretty easy, huh? I hope that you enjoy these delicious Turkey and Stuffing Balls!
May I suggest serving them up with some mashed potatoes and gravy or simply a small bowl of gravy for dipping? They are amazing when dipped in gravy. Comfort food at its finest!
