Italian Meatballs

This recipes originally called for ground chicken or pork. I ended up using ground turkey because that is what I had on hand. They were delicious!

2 pounds ground chicken, turkey, or pork
1 medium onion minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup oats
2 eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Blend all ingredients together well. Use a 3T scoop to make balls.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
(These can just be baked on a cookie sheet or stoneware because the grease content is so low.)
These meatballs also freeze well.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
