 Ingredients List

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 T. worcestershire
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 t. dried basil
  • 3/4 t. dried oregano
  • 1/2 t. kosher salt
  • 1/4 t. black pepper
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3 cups marinara sauce (I used this)


1. In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, egg, panko, worcestershire, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper with your hands.

2. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop the meatball mixture.

3. Take one of the pieces of cubed mozzarella and stuff it into the center of the meatball, making sure to cover the cheese completely with meat.

4. Repeat the process until all of the meat mixture is gone.

5. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and spray it generously with cooking spray.

6. Place the meatballs in the skillet and brown them for 2 minutes on each side.

7. Pour the marinara sauce evenly into the skillet and turn the heat down to medium low.

8. Cover the skillet with a lid and simmer the meatballs for 10 minutes.

9. Top the meatballs with the shredded mozzarella and serve.
