No Breadcrumb/No Egg Meatballs

No Breadcrumb/No Egg Meatballs

Last updated: February 2022

This is my guilt-free meatball recipe. Seriously, you won’t even miss the egg or breadcrumb! This is how I make my meatballs for any style dish! You can pair this with tomato sauce, sriracha and honey, or even eat these cocktail-style (you know the type with Heinz chili sauce and grape jelly). Since this recipe doesn’t use breadcrumb, it’s also great for low-carb or keto diets. Without sauce, four meatballs is just 1.6 net carbs!

This recipe is just how to make meatballs, not sauce.

I hope you enjoy it!

Makes 4 servings
Serving Size: 4 meatballs

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients for no breadcrumb/no egg meatballs

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp liquid aminos (a soy sauce substitute)
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground ginger

Directions for no breadcrumb/no egg meatballs

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. While the oven is pre-heating, put your raw ground turkey in a large bowl and add the oil, liquid aminos, garlic powder, onion powder, and ground ginger.
  3. Using your hand mix together all the ingredients. Make sure everything is combined but don’t overwork the meat.
  4. Take a baking tray and line it with aluminum foil.
  5. Start rolling your meatballs. I prefer smaller cocktail-style meatballs so I can usually get 16 out of 1 pound of ground turkey. They’re each about 1.5 inches in diameter.
  6. Bake your meatballs for 11 minutes.
  7. Take the meatballs out of the oven and add them to whatever sauce you’re using. I usually let mine simmer in the sauce for at least 5-10 minutes.
