Makes 18 Meatballs or 4 Burger Patties 


1 lb ground turkey

½ c. Foraged & Found Sea Asparagus Pesto

½ c. breadcrumbs

¼ c. milk

¼ c. grated Parmesan cheese

½ tsp salt (or to taste)

Pinch of nutmeg

2 Tbsp olive oil


Season the meat with salt and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Soak the breadcrumbs in milk.  

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and gently mix with your hands until just incorporated. Form into balls or patties. If making meatballs, scoop approximately 1.5 tablespoons of meat mixture and gentle form into a ball. If making burgers, divide meat into 4 evenly-sized patties. 

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until oil is shimmering. Add meatballs and cook until browned and cooked through. 

Add in Foraged & Found Marinara Sauce or Foraged & Found Arrabiata Sauce and heat until the sauce is bubbling. 

Serve on your favorite pasta or as a sandwich!
