To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground beef or ground pork, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 1 and 2, rolling occasionally, 4-5 minutes, then adding sauce, covering, and cooking until meatballs reach minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes.

  1. 1

    Form the Meatballs

    Finely crush crackers.

    In a mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, chimichurri seasoning, garlic salt, ricotta, and crushed crackers.

    Form mixture into eight evenly-sized meatballs.

  2. 2

    Cook the Meatballs

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add meatballs to hot pan and roll occasionally until browned all over, 5-6 minutes.

    Add marinara and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While meatballs cook, continue recipe.
