After one of many lunches at Potbelly's, my son Wyatt's first word was "meatball!" .  There's nothing cuter than when your kids start to talk and nothing better than when they can tell you what they want. Luckily I found a recipe on Pinterest that (almost) matches his enthusiasm with flavor.  (He's pretty enthusiastic).  They're moist, hearty, and absolutely delicious.  And I tried it with both ground turkey and beef.

Add them to your favorite spaghetti marinara or else enjoy them plain.  Recipe after the jump:

Turkey or Beef Meatballs
Yield: about 12-14 meatballs

1 lb ground round or ground turkey
2 eggs beaten with a 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup panko
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup minced basil

Mix all of ingredients together with your hands.  Form meatballs into the size of a golf ball.  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until the internal temperature registers to at least 165 degrees.
