Turkey, Spinach & Cheese Meatballs #dinner #vegetarian

This is a brisk weeknight formula the entire family adores. The expansion of turkey frankfurter and cheddar makes the meatballs delicate and brimming with flavor.

There's dependably energy at my home when meatballs are on the menu, yet I didn't know how the children would feel about these on the grounds that, well, spinach. Be that as it may, they cherished them, spinach what not. What makes them extraordinary is the expansion of turkey wiener. Not exclusively does the frankfurter make the meatballs delicate, it additionally includes incredible flavor without the requirement for a huge amount of different fixings.

To make life simple, I dark colored the meatballs under the grill as opposed to in a griddle. That implies no stovetop splatters, and you can prepare the remainder of supper while the meatballs cook.

Turkey, Spinach & Cheese Meatballs #dinner #vegetarian


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 ounces baby spinach, chopped (3-1/2 cups whole; 1-1/2 cups chopped)
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts, finely sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1.25 pounds 93/7 ground turkey (I use Shady Brook Farms)
  • 1.25 pounds Italian turkey sausage, removed from the casings (I use Shady Brook Farms)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella (preferably whole milk but low-fat will work)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano, plus more for serving
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 (24 oz) jar marinara sauce, homemade or good quality store-bought


  1. Preheat the broiler and set an oven rack on the second-highest rack. Line a baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil and grease with the olive oil.
  2. In a bowl large enough to hold all of the ingredients, beat the egg. Add the chopped spinach, scallions, and garlic and stir until evenly combined. Add the ground turkey, turkey sausage, mozzarella, Parmigiano-Reggiano and bread crumbs. Using your hands, mix until evenly combined. Shape the mixture into 1-1/2 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Broil the meatballs until golden brown on top, about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the tomato sauce in a large pan on the stovetop. Add the broiled meatballs and simmer over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the meatballs are fully cooked.
  5. Freezer-Friendly Instructions: These can be frozen in their sauce for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, reheat the meatballs in their sauce on the stovetop over medium heat until hot in the center.
