For a long time, I ignored any meatball recipes because it seemed like too much work. But I really do love a good bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, and if I can sneak a few extra veggies in there? Bonus points. This meatball mix comes together quickly, and you can use a melon baller or other small scoop to quickly make an entire pan. Not so much work after all!
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1 small zucchini, shredded
- 1 handful spinach, finely chopped
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. You may need to use your hands to get everything completely mixed up. Get messy! Use your hands or a small scoop to form meatballs from the mixture. I got 44 small meatballs.
Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, until cooked through.
You can serve these with your favorite pasta and a simple red sauce (we like the sauce from this recipe minus the sausage) or over mashed potatoes. You can even put them on a meatball sub if you and bread products get along! Whether you’re gluten free or not, you’re going to want to try these.
