Stuffing-Style Turkey Meatballs

1 Tbsp butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh sage, chopped
1 Tsbp fresh thyme, chopped
1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
1/2 cup apple cider
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Heat 1/2 Tbsp butter in skillet over medium heat. Add onion and celery, and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook 1 more minute; transfer vegetable mixture to a large bowl, and let cool slightly. Melt remaining 1/2 Tbsp butter; set aside.

3. Add parsley, sage, thyme, turkey, cider, egg, Parmesan, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Gently mix with hands until combined. Divide mixture into six; roll and shape each into one large meatball.

4. Arrange on prepare baking sheet; flatten slightly. Brush with remaining butter, and roast for 13 to 15 minutes, or until browned and a thermometer registers 160˚F degrees.
