10-Minute Healthy Turkey Meatballs (No Breadcrumbs!)

The best healthy turkey meatballs without breadcrumbs! Easy to make, spicy, flavorful, and done in just 10 minutes in the broiler. 

Weeknights just got more exciting over here!

Guys, these are my go-to healthy turkey meatballs! I’ve been making these babies for years. Back in the day, I would always bake them until I found out you can literally broil them for 10 minutes to juicy perfection!

Do you know how much time that saved me?!!?

Of course, I was skeptical until I tried it for myself and BAM. Meatballs in 10 minutes! I always thought the broiler was just to broil the top of a dish. Silly me.

These healthy turkey meatballs are juicy, delicious, easy to make, spicy, gluten-free and paleo AF.

NO BREADCRUMBS!

You can use Worcestershire or low-sodium soy sauce (if not following a paleo diet) instead of coconut aminos which is how I always made them in the past.

Also, this cookie scoop? The BEST for making meatballs! It makes the perfect 1-inch in diameter meatball which is why they are ready in just 10 minutes.

P.S. As I mentioned in the recipe below, not all broilers are created equal so make sure to check after 5 minutes of cooking to see if it’s going well or if you need to flip them before continuing to cook. You know your broiler better than I do. Use your best judgement.

You can then serve these with your favorite salad like this Spicy Arugula Salad or Zucchini Noodles with Arugula Pesto. I mean, the sky’s the limit here.

This seriously is the best weeknight meal ever. I hope you make them and LOVE them!

Course: Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Paleo
Author: Jamie Silva
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground turkey (check for no added ingredients)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced or 2 tablespoons finely chopped white onion
  • 2 teaspoons coconut aminos*
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce (+ more for dipping) I used Tabasco. Check labels for any weird ingredients.
Instructions
  1. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Add all ingredients to a bowl and gently mix until well combined. Form into 15 meatballs (approx. 1-inch in diameter) using a medium cookie scoop so they are all the same size. Place on lined baking sheet.

  3. Broil on HIGH for 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.** Serve with your favorite side dish and favorite sauce. Enjoy!

*You can sub low-sodium soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce, if not paleo.

 

**Not all broilers are created equal. After 5 minutes, check your meatballs and flip, if needed, and continue cooking for the remaining 5 minutes. I've never had to do this but you know your broiler better than I do. ;)
