5 from 2 votes


  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 onions
  • 1 tablespoons dried basil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • 1 cup water


  • Coat 6-quart Crock Pot with cooking spray. Mix bread crumbs, eggs, half of the garlic, half of the onions, and basil in a large bowl. Add the turkey. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix well. Cover and place in freezer for about 20 minutes to make handling easier.
  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute remaining garlic and onion until translucent and soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Shape meat into 20 2-inch meatballs. Add to Crock Pot in layers. Pour sauce mixture over top.
  • Cook for 5-7 hours on low. Our meatballs were cooked through and falling apart after 5 hours.
