Ingredients

3 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
1/4 cup whole milk
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, 93 percent lean, dark meat
3 scallions, finely chopped
2 small cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 large egg
Coarse salt and ground pepper


Place bread in food processor; pulse until fine crumbs form.


In a small bowl, mix breadcrumbs with milk; set aside at least 5 minutes.


In a large bowl, combine turkey, scallions, garlic, parsley, egg, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and breadcrumb mixture; mix gently with a fork.


With hands, form mixture into balls, each equal to 2 level tablespoons; arrange in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


To freeze, transfer baking sheet to freezer. Freeze for 1 hour to set shape; transfer frozen meatballs to an airtight container or resealable plastic bag, and freeze for up to 3 months.
