These baked low-salt turkey meatballs are healthy, packed with flavor, incredibly moist on the inside and crispy golden on the outside. A combination of fresh and dried herbs give these meatballs an Italian flair while also providing a balance of flavors. Top with a simple marinara sauce and they’re impossible to resist. You can also double the recipe, freeze, and simply reheat the meatballs when you want a quick dinner on the table.
