Weeknights just got all the more energizing here! Folks, these are my go-to sound turkey meatballs! I’ve been making these infants for a considerable length of time. Some time ago, I would consistently prepare them until I discovered you can actually sear them for 10 minutes to delicious flawlessness!

Obviously, I was suspicious from the outset until I attempted it for myself. I was intrigued! These meatballs are succulent, scrumptious, simple to make, without gluten and low carb. Additionally, this treat scoop? The BEST for making these meatballs! It makes the ideal 1-inch in width meatball which is the reason they are prepared in only 10 minutes.

Nigella’s turkey meatballs are light and succulent, as well as being lower in fat. Make a batch – half for tea and half to be frozen for future outings.


  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil plus more to brush on top

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (or 2 tablespoons finely chopped white onion)

  • salt + pepper to taste


  • Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, add ground turkey, cumin, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, egg, sesame oil, and green onions. Gently mix until well combined. Careful not to overmix or the meatballs won’t be moist and tender.
  • Form the mixture into meatballs. Place on lined baking sheet. Using a medium cookie scoop makes 15 meatballs, 1-inch in diameter. You can definitely make them in whatever size you’d like, just make sure they are all the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Broil on HIGH for 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.* Brush with more sesame oil on top for more flavor. Serve with your favorite side dish. Enjoy!
