There’s nothing better than coming home to the smell of a delicious dinner that’s been slowly cooking all day, especially when you don’t have to toil away in the kitchen for hours to make it! Throw all the ingredients for these turkey meatballs into a crock pot in the morning, set the timer, and indulge in a warm, hearty meal that night. Roll the meatballs in smaller bite-sized pieces and they make a great holiday party appetizer!


1 lb. lean ground turkey
½ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
½ cup whole grain breadcrumbs, or gluten-free breadcrumbs
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
crushed red pepper flakes to taste (optional if you want a little kick of heat!)
1 (28-oz.) can whole tomatoes, crushed or your favorite spaghetti sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine all ingredients except sauce in a large bowl and mix well with clean hands.
  3. Roll mixture into 1½-inch meatballs and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Set aside. (for a party appetizer I like to roll them a little smaller)
  4. Place meatballs in the oven for 20-25 minutes
  5. Remove from oven an place the meatballs in a crock pot (be careful not no get any fat that was cooked out of the meat into the crock pot).
  6. Add sauce and turn the  crock pot on high for 4 hours.
  7. Serve turkey meatballs hot with your favorite pasta or alone as an appetizer.
