  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbl. olive oil
  • 1 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

For the mushroom gravy...

  • 1 Tbl. fresh thyme leaves minced
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups chicken or beef broth
  • 2 Tbl. flour

Instructions
 

For the meatballs...

  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, except turkey. Then add turkey and mix just until incorporated. Do not overwork. Roll into meatballs, about 1 1/2-inches in diameter and place on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until meatballs are firm.

For the mushroom gravy...

  • To same skillet add 1 Tbl. butter, sliced mushrooms, and shallots and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add the fresh thyme and cook an additional minute. Dust mixture with flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. The mixture will be thick. Gradually stir in broth 1/2 cup at a time, allowing mixture to come to a boil in between each addition. Add more broth until desired thickness is achieved. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Return meatballs to gravy, reduce heat to low, and allow to braise until meatballs are cooked through.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes or rice with fresh parsley to garnish.
