Turkey Meatball Lollipops

Serves: 6-8 People
Cooking Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:
1 (1.25lb) Pack Foster Farm Ground Turkey (93%/7% Lean)
1 Pack Fresh Turkey Italian Sausage Hot & Spicy
1 Small Sweet White Onion, minced
1 ½ Cup Aged Gouda Cheese, grated
2 Eggs
6 Cloves Garlic, minced
10 Basil Leafs, minced
2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley, minced
1 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning
½ Teaspoon Black Pepper
½ Teaspoon Salt
Serve with – BBQ Sauce or Store Bought Tomato Sauce
Lollipop Sticks (Optional)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400° and then start by grabbing a large mixing bowl and adding the ground turkey meat. Now take the Italian sausage out of its casing and combined the meats together. Next add all the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl including the onion, garlic, eggs, basil, parsley, cheese, Italian seasoning, pepper and salt and use your hands to blend everything together well. Next take a small muffin tin or baking sheet (if you use a baking sheet make sure you line it with tin foil first) and spray with Pam or any non-stick cooking spray. Now start forming your mixture into meatballs about a golf ball in size and place them into the muffin tin and bake in oven for 20 minutes. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for a minute or two. You can either serve these meatballs as a fantastic pupu with BBQ dipping sauce (on lollipop sticks for fun) or use them in a traditional spaghetti and meatballs entrée with your favorite tomato sauce.
