For more information, including nutritional information head to Michelle's blog.

1.25 lb. lean ground turkey
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons dried chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or 3 cloves, minced)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup quick oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, beat the egg.
Add remaining ingredients except turkey, combine well.
Add turkey to the mixture, and combine well. It's easier to do this with your hands (I use vinyl gloves) than a spoon.
Form into 1.5 balls and place on the baking pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, turning the meatballs over halfway through.
