Reviews for Spinach Turkey Meatballs
Sort By :
"i use fresh spinach and after making my balls I insert a chunk of cream cheese in the middle. I also add more seasoning such as garlic, pepper, sea salt, etc. Usually the balls have to be smashed down a little after cooking half way so they're more like a patty, (which is my ocd way of ensuring they're cooked all the way). My fiance and I love these! The cream cheese really makes then amazing!"
"What kind/brand of seasoned salt? That would make all the difference."
"my first rating for this recipe was not good, however my husband really liked these. using whole ground turkey makes a world of difference in taste."
"I have made many different types of meatballs, mostly with beef since we don't care for ground turkey too much. These turkey meatballs were by far the best we have had. Delicious!"
"I will probably ALWAYS make these meatballs now! My daughter and I made these the same time (she is out of state) and we compared notes after. Our families love them! I baked mine, she pan sauted. Both turned out to be delisious variations. She dropped hers into a pot of vodka sauce for the final stage of cooking and served over buttered egg noodles. Ours were straight up and served with a huge green salad and cob corn. Only needing something a little more savory, i fixed thenm again the next night and tweeked them slightly. I added a generouse handful of shreded parmesian and some onion powder, then pan seared them. Oh my goodness, this is the way to go."
