Meatballs

  • 1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • ½ cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 red onions sliced into wedges
  • 1 bulb fennel sliced into wedges and fronds reserved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Divide red onion, fennel, and sweet potatoes among two sheet pans and drizzle with olive oil. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
