- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1 lg egg lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tbsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
