Serve these bite-sized treats to your friends as an appetizer or to your family as a quick and delicious meal.


1 pound dark turkey meat, cut into 1-inch cubes and well-chilled
1/2 onion, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/4 cup Italian parsley leaves, chopped
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray
4 cups marinara sauce


Container: 56-ounce Pitcher

  1. Add the turkey to the Pitcher. Turn unit ON then hold down "Auto-iQ PULSE" until turkey is finely chopped. Do not over process.
  2. Transfer the turkey to a bowl and add onion, garlic, parsley, cheese, bread crumbs, tomato paste, egg, salt and pepper, mixing to combine. Form mixture into mini meatballs.
  3. Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, sauté meatballs until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add marinara sauce and simmer until sauce is thickened and meatballs are cooked through completely, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Go ahead, embrace your inner meal prepper. We hear you, making smoothies the night before is a huge time saver. But, heads up, never store your smoothies with the blade assembly attached—active ingredients in some foods may lead to pressure buildup and possible injury. Store them with Sip & Seal Lids instead.
