  1. Instructions
  2. Finely chop onion and bread using Food Chopper. Combine onion, bread crumbs, turkey, egg, spice blend, salt and black pepper in Classic Batter Bowl; mix gently but thoroughly with Mix ‘N Scraper®. Heat oil in (12-in./30-cm) Skillet over medium heat 1-3 minutes or until shimmering. Using rounded Medium Scoop, form turkey mixture into 20 meatballs. Place meatballs in Skillet; cook 6-8 minutes or until browned, turning once using Small Slotted Turner. Remove from Skillet; set aside.
  3. Add flour and butter to Skillet, whisking to form a smooth paste using Silicone Flat Whisk. Slowly add broth and cream, stirring constantly; cook 1-2 minutes or until sauce comes to a simmer. Return meatballs to Skillet; cook, covered, 4-5 minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink in centers.
  4. To serve, divide meatballs and sauce among serving plates; serve with potatoes, if desired.
