Recipe Ingredients for Turkey & Beef Basil Meatballs

4 slices wheat bread, torn
1 c buttermilk
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
2 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon garlic , minced
3/4 teaspoon table salt

Recipe Directions for Turkey & Beef Basil Meatballs

  1. Combine bread and buttermilk in small bowl, mashing occasionally with fork, until smooth paste forms, about 10 minutes.

  2. Mix all ingredients, including bread mixture and pepper to taste in medium bowl. Lightly form 3 tablespoons of mixture into 1 1/2-inch round meatballs; repeat with remaining mixture to form approximately 32 meatballs. (Compacting them can make the meatballs dense and hard. Can be placed on large plate, covered loosely with plastic wrap, and refrigerated for several hours, good to do if using turkey.)
