Can you make these with other ground meats?
Yes! These turkey meatballs can be made with any other ground meats. They are great with chicken or pork, or you can of course use a red meat like beef or veal if you prefer.
Can you make them ahead of time?
These cheesy baked turkey meatballs are best served as soon as they are baked so that the mozzarella is nice and gooey.
You can roll and fill the meatballs up to 2 days ahead of time and keep them covered in the fridge. Then, just pop them into the oven when you are ready to serve.
What do you serve them with?
These meatballs are great to serve with a marinara sauce for dipping. The rich tomato flavor works so well with these! They are great to serve with all of your favorite dips.
- Don’t over mix the meatball ingredients. Everything should be combined, but over mixing can result in tough meatballs.
- I find it easiest to oven bake these, but you can shallow fry them in a skillet until golden brown if you prefer.
