Healthy twist to a traditional meatball. Very yummy, nutritious and kid-friendly!
Ingredients
  • 1½ lb Ground Turkey
  • 9 oz. Frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • ½ cup Shredded mozzarella cheese (low-fat)
  • 1 tsp Minced garlic
  • ½ tsp Onion powder
  • ¼ tsp Chili powder
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat a large skillet (I like cast iron) on medium/low.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients. Try not to overmix them. You just want to incorporate everything.
  3. Roll the meatballs with your hands making small/medium balls about 1 - 1½ inch in size. You should yield about 12-15 good-sized meatballs.
  4. Once they're all made, drizzle some olive oil into the pre-heated skillet and drop them in. DO NOT move them for at least 5 minutes. You want them to brown up nicely and not break apart when you flip them.
  5. To flip them, use a large spoon to gently roll them over. Cook on all sides for 5 minutes each side. If they still look slightly pink, just drop the heat to low and cover for 2 minutes. That should help cook the middle all the way through.
