Spinach Turkey Meatballs

Spinach Turkey Meatballs recipe


Hi, there K&K readers! Yes, I'm back. I must sound like a broken record, because I have to keep apologizing for slacking off on the blog posts.  But, I spent the day unpacking and I whipped up a batch of delicious and healthy meatballs for you.  And, I finally found my cord to connect my camera to my computer so that I can upload pictures again! Yay, that's one of the other reasons for the lack of posts lately.

These meatballs are packed with flavor and so easy to throw together.  You can serve them with tomato sauce or plain, or you could even throw some into a delicious soup.  When I make a batch of tomato sauce, I always make sure to freeze some for later, and that is what I used here.  You could even make a double batch of the meatballs and freeze them in the sauce for later, for a simple weeknight meal!

Hopefully, now that my house is unpacked I will have more time to cook in my big, beautiful new kitchen!

Spinach Turkey Meatballs recipe


Spinach Turkey Meatballs

450 grams extra-lean ground turkey
1 cup finely chopped baby spinach
1/3 cup finely diced onion
1/3 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 egg white
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Freshly ground salt and pepper

To finish: Tomato Sauce

Preheat the oven to 375F.  Place a rack on a aluminum foil lined baking sheet and spray with olive oil cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until distributed evenly throughout.  Form the mixture into small balls and place a few inches apart on the baking rack.

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 375F.  When the meatballs are cooked through, transfer them to a pot with 2 cups of tomato sauce.  Simmer for 10-15 minutes, then serve!
