Not Your NaNa's Meatballs

Traditional meatballs are usually made of three kinds of ground meat (pork, veal and beef) and browned in a frying pan.
Sometimes I want a meatball but not all the heaviness that comes along with them. I love ground turkey and use it quite often.

Turkey Meatballs:
1 lb ground turkey
1 egg beaten
1 tbsp each sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/4 c Italian style bread crumbs
1/8 c Parmesan cheese
1/8 c each fresh basil and Italian parsley, chopped

Preheat oven to 425*F. Combine all ingredients until well mixed. Form meatballs about 1 1/2 in in diameter and arrange on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, turning occasionally to brown all sides.
