Servings 8 skewers


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 cups bread crumbs I made my own in the food processor, but you can use store bought too!
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp basil, dried
  • 1 tbsp oregano, dried
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 can Pillsbury breadsticks
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • 10 wooden skewers
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated


  • Set your oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic, basil, and oregano.  Roll into 1" meatballs. 
  • Using 1 breadstick at a time, thread one end of the dough onto the end of the skewer, followed by 1 meatball. Repeat this step with a second meatball. Each skewer will have 2 meatballs. The breadstick should form a "S". Leave room for the bread to rise and the meatballs to cook thoroughly by spreading apart the meatballs away from each other about 1/2 inch. Place finished skewers on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle each skewer with mozzarella cheese. Place them back in the oven for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted and gooey. Mmmmm.
  • Serve with a side of warm marinara sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
