Ingredients
 

Meatballs

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 2 teaspoon parsley

Parmesan Sauce

  • 1 3/4 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese (cut from the block)
  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (half if using salted butter)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Combine ground turkey with egg, salt, pepper, garlic and parsley. Note, this will be sticky. In order to form meatballs be sure to oil your hands before rolling them.
  • Roll seasoned ground turkey into meatballs with the diameter of a quarter but thick enough to be considered a meatball. Not super tiny but not so thick they will have a hard time cooking through. I used a meatball maker and I got 15 meatballs.
  • In a skillet on medium/ high heat add oil and meatballs. Don't crowd them, if you need to cook in batches do so. Cook on both sides for about 2-3 minutes. They don't have to be done inside this step is for color.
  • Remove meatballs and then adjust heat to low heat. Add in butter, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Allow the sauce to simmer a little. See notes if sauce isn't thickening. Sauce should be thick before adding in meatballs. After sauce is right then add meatballs back in
  • Place in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove, garnish with parsley and and a bit of parmesan then serve. Careful, the cream sauce will be hot.
  • Note: You will have to remove the meatballs after baking and give the sauce a stir to get the thickness back. While baking the parmesan cheese likes to settle to the bottom.

Notes

Parmesan Cheese- Be sure to use Parmesan Cheese from the cheese section of the grocery store. The shelf stable cheese has a non-caking agent that makes it not melt properly.
