Italian Homemade Meatballs (Great for Hoagies or Spaghetti)

2 pounds ground lean turkey
1 cup bread crumbs or 1 cup oats
2 eggs or 4 egg whites
1/2 onion finely chopped
2 tsp minced wet garlic
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp basil
1 tsp pepper
1 cup Parmesan
cooking spray

Spaghetti Sauce heated to serve over meatballs
Additional Parmesan for garnish
Whole wheat hoagies or whole wheat spaghetti

Preheat oven to 375
Mix all ingredients well, form meat balls, place in a 13 x 9 inch well sprayed baking dish
Bake for 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the meat balls
Cut 1 meatball in half from the middle of the dish, if there is still pink, bake an additional 5-10 minutes

The thickness of the meatball will dictate cooking time, so if you are unsure, cook for 30 minutes and then check one from the middle.  Most likely it will take at least 45 minutes to cook through.
