Turkey Spinach Meatballs

This is another quick and easy healthy dinner option, although I will say when working with lean turkey the finished product can be a bit dry. Serve with the easy homemade cranberry sauce (also posted below) for a simple, tasty solution to this problem. You’ll also notice below, that a few of the ingredients are specified “to taste”. I lightly sprinkle these over the meat before mixing.

Turkey Spinach Meatballs

Lean ground turkey
8ozĀ of frozen, chopped spinach (thawed)
Chopped onions
Parmesan cheese (to taste)
Minced garlic (to taste)
1 egg
Salt and pepper (to taste)

1. Heat oven to 350 degree.

2. Mix all ingredients together, and then form meatballs using spoon and/or hands. Place meatballs on a baking tray lined with aluminum foil.

3. Bake in oven for approximately 20 min or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

While the meatballs are cooking, you can start the cranberry sauce.

Cranberry Sauce

12oz package of fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of water

1. Mix honey and water together in a pot and bring to a boil.

2. Add cranberries and cook until cranberries begin to “pop”.

3. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally.

4. Mash cranberries to preferred consistency, and serve with meatballs.
