Turkey Meatballs

Sometimes you’re looking for something simple, but new.  Often when I’m done trying something new, I liked the original better.  For example, I always put ground beef in my spaghetti sauce. This time I looked up turkey meatballs after purchasing Fischer Farms ground turkey at Bloomingfoods.

I googled ground turkey recipes.  Found something I could play with at allrecipes.comhttps://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=fae8488564&view=att&th=1336fa5d476495ee&attid=0.3&disp=inline&realattid=1384568115133218704-3&zw



  • Crisco® No-Stick Olive Oil Spray
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh spinach, finely chopped ( I didn’t have spinach)
  • 3 green onions, minced (I only had white onions so I cut one in half and diced it)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons Dickinson’s® Tomato Ketchup (I didn’t have it, nor did I make it from scratch; but I might do that later on)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I didn’t measure it, but I did a couple spins with the whole salt grinder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I didn’t replace it with anything)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (I didn’t replace it with anything)

I used my hands to mix the meat.  I might have also added a couple cloves of garlic, but I can’t remember.  Once it’s mixed, ball it and put it on a greased pan/aluminum foil.   Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
