Total Time

"This is one of my 'experiments'," says Regina Davis of Griffin, Georgia. "I came up with it when trying to figure out a new taste for ground turkey, since we eat a lot of it. But I didn't want to run to the grocery store, so I used ingredients I had on hand. It's now one of our family's favorites."


  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix, divided
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 3 cups water, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Hot cooked noodles or rice


  1. In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, and half of the soup mix. Crumble meat over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls.
  2. In a large skillet, cook meatballs in batches until browned on all sides and a thermometer reads 165°; drain. Stir in 2-1/2 cups water and remaining soup mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until juices run clear.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour and remaining water until smooth; gradually add to the skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with noodles or rice.
