These are really easy to assemble and a nice alternative to traditional meatball recipes! Remember to make extra meatballs and freeze them so you have a back up plans when you are in a hurry! Stocking my freezer has saved me so many times!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of turkey, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 of cup of parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 pack of pre-cooked pantry polenta
  • 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves, chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven at 400 F. Combine the meat, parmesan, garlic, breadcrumbs, the egg, some salt and pepper. Make 2 inches meatballs, place on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes until the meat is golden brown and cooked through!

Meanwhile, slice the polenta, place on a baking sheet, place the meatballs on top when ready, spoon some tomato sauce on each and sprinkle some mozzarella cheese and basil! Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes and enjoy!
