  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, fennel, apple, and seasonings. Mix until well combined. 
  • Roll into 12 meatballs, and place on the baking sheet. You may also choose to roll smaller meatballs to serve a bigger crowd. In this case, you may need to keep a closer eye on them in the oven and decrease the cooking time as needed.
  • Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until meatballs are baked through. Enjoy with a dip of your choice, such as tomato sauce!


*To grate the fennel, choose a tough piece of the bulb for best results.
