These homemade turkey meatballs taste like they’ve been slow-simmered, but they’re actually baked on a sheet pan in the oven, then coated with Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce. This super simple meatball recipe uses lean turkey instead of beef, and bakes in just 20 minutes. Once you know how to make these easy, slimmed-down sheet pan turkey meatballs, you’ll find they work in so many different recipes: saucy hot sub sandwiches, spiralized vegetable noodle bowls and more!


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 pound 85% lean ground turkey
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) Prego®+ Hidden Super Veggies Traditional Italian Sauce or Traditional No Sugar Added


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F.  While the oven is heating, mix the egg, bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, Parmesan and water in a large bowl.  Add the turkey and mix just until combined (over-mixing will make the meatballs tough).  Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 2

    Spray a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray.  Firmly shape the turkey mixture into 12 (2-inch) meatballs (use about 1/4 cup mixture for each meatball).  Place the meatballs onto the baking sheet.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 20 minutes or until the meatballs are done.

  • Step 4

    While the meatballs are baking, heat the sauce in a 3-quart saucepan over low heat until hot.  When the meatballs are done, add to the sauce and stir to coat.
