  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Beat the egg in a mixing bowl, then stir in the carrot, zucchini, onion, salt, basil, and oregano. Add the turkey and Parmesan cheese; mix until evenly blended. Form the turkey mixture into 16 meatballs, roll in bread crumbs, and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the turkey is no longer pink on the inside, and the meatballs are golden brown, about 1 hour.

These meatballs are delicious! Great way to get extra veggies in my one year old. Having read the other reviews first, I did add a little bread crumb to the mixture before adding the turkey (m...

I think the meatballs would hold together a lot better if you squeezed the moisture out of the veggies (or at least the onions) in a cheesecloth or towel. Probably a good flavor, though.

I liked these a lot. I let the zucchini drain a bit in a colander to get rid of some of the moisture and it worked fine. I made half of the meatballs by adding the crumbs to the mixture.. and ...

Huge hit with our two year old anti-veggie toddler. We both liked them too! Didn't change anything. Will definitely make again!

DELICIOUS and crunchy!
