Turkey Meatballs w/white breast help please!

janie | Nov 12, 2008 12:39 PM

Having read with a bunch of posts and on the net, I cannot find a decent recipe that overcomes the dryness that seems to be a major complaint. I wanted to make meatballs similiar to how I would make beef meatballs, brown them, and then finish cooking them in a sauce. Many of the recipes show them just baking on a sheet, or throwing them into a sauce without browning them, which just seems kind of gross to me.

I've got a 1 lb package of ground turkey breast white from whole foods, and am trying to make meatballs for my 3 year old. He loves my meatloaf which has a barbecue soy sauce to it, and he loves pizza, but is afraid of pasta...so, I would like to see if he would eat these turkey meatballs with a tomato sauce...he eats soy meatballs from Trader joes.

Please help me with a good recipe quick. Should I add soy milk? eggs? bread crumbs? greek yogurt? Reggiano cheese? Worscheshire? Dry mustard? Fresh Parsley? This is what I've got....

Thank you experts out there!
