Turkey Meatballs with creamy mushroom sauce

Leaner than beef, this turkey meatballs recipe is light, loaded with flavor, and super tender on the inside. We use a combination of cheese, spices, fresh and dried herbs to give these turkey meatballs a great balance of savors.

How to make the turkey meatballs

We recommend keeping the ingredients in the refrigerator until the very last minute, so the turkey meatballs keep well together. Combine the meat, spices, cheese, and cilantro with your hands, then use a tablespoon or a small ice cream scoop to make the balls.

How long to cook turkey meatballs?

How long to cook turkey meatballs? Time varies based on the size of the turkey meatball and the cooking method. You must cook until the internal temperature of the turkey meatballs reaches 165ºF (74ºC) on an instant-read thermometer. Do not overheat your skillet to avoid burning the meatballs while the inside is still undercooked. A nice sear with that lovely golden color is sufficient.

1. To make the creamy mushroom turkey meatballs: In a large bowl, combine ground turkey and ground chicken, cheese, grated garlic, Italian seasoning, bouillon cube, red chili pepper flakes, chopped cilantro, and black pepper. Mix well with your hands or fork and form medium balls. Arrange the turkey meatballs on a plate and set them aside.

2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the turkey meatballs for 8 – 10 minutes on all sides, until browned and cooked through. While cooking, baste the meatballs with a mix of butter and juices. Remove to a clean plate and set aside.

3. In the same pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter in the remaining cooking juices. Add the sliced mushrooms and fry for 4 – 5 minutes, until they get some color. Add in the garlic and fry until fragrant (about one minute). Add onion and stir fry until translucent, still with the mushrooms. Finally, pour in the vegetable broth, and allow the sauce to reduce slightly. 

4. Reduce heat to low, add in the heavy cream, and bring to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Season the cream sauce with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Finally, add in the parmesan cheese. Allow the creamy mushroom sauce to simmer for a further minute until cheese melts through. 

6. Add the cooked turkey meatballs back into the pan; sprinkle with the parsley, and spoon the sauce over each meatball. Serve the creamy mushroom turkey meatballs over steamed veg or cauliflower rice for Keto dieters, or rice or pasta for non-Keto. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the creamy mushroom turkey meatballs recipe

These creamy mushroom turkey meatballs are a quick and easy dinner that’s 100% sure to please everyone! Here are a few tips for tweaking it to your taste.

  • You can mix in 1 lb (450g) ground beef and 1 lb (450g) spicy pork sausage instead of using ground turkey and chicken. Or feel free to create your own custom mix.
  • You can use a small ice cream scoop to make your turkey meatballs the same size.
  • Make sure to cook the meatballs on medium heat to avoid burning them while still undercooked on the inside.
  • You can add an egg to keep your turkey meatballs juicy and moist. Add a little butter if you feel the meatballs will be too dry.
  • Try to keep your ground turkey, ground chicken, and other ingredients as cold as possible and make the turkey meatballs mixture in a chilled bowl. This way you‘ll keep the fat from melting and breaking down before you cook the turkey meatballs.

What to do with turkey meatballs leftovers? 

You can keep the turkey meatballs leftover for up to 2 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Reheat with a few drops of water to loosen the mushroom sauce. If you wish to freeze the cooked turkey meatballs, keep them in a freezer-safe storage bag or container and keep them frozen for up to 3 months. Allow thawing in your refrigerator overnight before reheating the turkey meatballs in your oven or on the stove.
