But seriously, why have I never added oats to my meatballs before? I have been looking for alternatives to bread crumbs for years and I have to say, using rolled oats is the best alternative that I have found.
I usually use ground almonds, and those do work great. BUT I really like the way that oats retain the moisture in meatballs in a similar fashion that bread crumbs do.
This meatball recipe with oatmeal is a winner in my house. And I love the simple ingredients inside.
Ingredients needed to make these Ground Turkey Meatballs with Oats:
