Turkey Meatballs

the base recipe is from allrecipes I added seasoning and cheese. Just a reminder use 93% fat free ground turkey


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (20 ounce) package ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with the olive oil, and place it in the oven while preheating.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground turkey, egg, and bread crumbs, parmensan cheese, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic using your hands. Using an ice cream scoop if possible, form the meat into golf ball sized meatballs. ( I stuffed the middle of the meatballs with mozerella cheese) Place about 1 inch apart in the hot baking dish. Press down to flatten the bottom just slightly.
3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn them over, and continue baking for about 5 more minutes, or until somewhat crispy on the outside. Serve with pasta and sauce or however you'd like.
