Expert Tips
  • If you do not use a food processor, then you can grind the turkey cubes twice at the butcher.
  • While preparing the meatballs, mix all the ingredients and knead with your hands until you get a nice consistency.
  • You can also use crumbled, stale bread instead of breadcrumbs.
  • Be sure to grate the onion and garlic you will use. Otherwise, it will suppress the flavor of the meatballs.
  • Let the meatballs rest for 10 minutes before cooking. Then knead and shape them again.
