Onion Turkey Meatballs

Serves: 4-6

1 cup bread crumbs
1 envelope dry onion soup mix, divided
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
3 c. water, divided
3 T. flour
Hot cooked noodles or rice

In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, half of the soup mix and the turkey; mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. In a large skillet, brown meatballs in batches over medium heat, turning frequently. Stir in 2 1/2 cups water and remaining soup mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

In a bowl, combine the flour and remaining water until smooth; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook for 5 minutes or until thickened. Serve over noodles or rice.

Tips: If you tend to have ground meat frozen in 1 lb. increments, adapt this receipt by using 3/4 c. bread crumbs and slightly less than half the dry soup mix in the meatballs. I went ahead and made the sauce as the receipt said had extra. A little dash of pepper would be good in the sauce as well. Also, in order to get the water and flour smooth, put them both in a small plastic container with a lid and shake well. I would assume this recipe could probably be made with ground beef as well but I don't know how it might turn out differently. I also shared this recipe at Tales From the Fairy Blogmother's What's Cooking Wednesday.
