You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
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, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 2 and 3, roasting in hot oven until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 9-11 minutes.
If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 2 and 3, roasting in hot oven until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 8-10 minutes.
Start the Vegetables
Peel, trim, and cut carrot and parsnip into ½" pieces.
Place vegetables on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for meatballs). Spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until starting to brown, 5-8 minutes.
Carefully remove from oven. Vegetables will finish cooking in a later step.
While vegetables roast, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Form Meatballs
Coarsely crush crackers.
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
In a mixing bowl, combine turkey, ricotta, crushed crackers, remaining seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Form mixture into eight equally-sized meatballs.
Cook Meatballs and Finish Vegetables
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add meatballs to hot pan and sear until browned on two “sides,” 2-3 minutes per side.
Remove from burner. Transfer meatballs to empty half of baking sheet. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Roast in hot oven until vegetables are tender and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.
While vegetables and meatballs roast, make gravy.
Make the Gravy
Return pan used to cook meatballs to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add mushrooms to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned and tender, 5-7 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
Stir in Stroganoff sauce and ¼ cup water until heated through, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner.
