Spinach and Feta Turkey Meatballs
Meatballs are a great way to beef up a dish. Be it pasta, adding them to a soup or stew, as the bulk of your sandwich, added into a casserole, toppings on pizza; the options are limitless. Meatballs really do it all. For a modern and healthy twist on the traditional meatball, the spinach and feta turkey meatball is a fantastic option for those looking for a leaner meat and delicious flavor.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a baking tray
In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, feta, spinach, egg, dill, lemon, salt and pepper. Really dig your hands in and get the mixture evenly mixed. A little elbow grease is required, and it may be kind of gross, but it’s also kind of satisfying at the same time.
With your mixture, form turkey meatballs into golf ball sizes and place on the tray. Evenly distribute the meatballs onto the tray to ensure proper cooking.
Bake for 12 minutes, then flip and bake for 12 more minutes until they start to brown and are fully cooked through the middle. Once browned, remove from the oven and allow cooling. You’re now free to use your turkey feta and spinach meatballs to your liking. Spice up your spaghetti, sandwich or pizza!
