  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine turkey, quinoa, and next 8 ingredients. Mix to combine all ingredients. Use your hands to roll mixture into balls and place each meatball onto prepared baking sheet an inch apart. Bake 10-12 minutes until meatballs begin to brown.
