Our children call these "Gramby Meatballs" because the recipe came from my dear mother-in-law. It's a great way to make spinach palatable. I usually make a triple batch, bake them all and freeze the extras for a quick meal later. —Mimi Blanco, Bronxville, New York

MY REVIEW

"Good recipe and very adaptable to personal tastes. I followed the recipe but used panko bread crumbs, some powered chicken bouillon and a few other herbs. I should have added the Parmesan cheese as mentioned by other commenters. Served them with pasta and sauce."

MY REVIEW

"Outstanding! I made a few adjustments based on reviews and personal taste: used fresh spinach (chopped), only 3/4 cup bread crumbs but added 1/2 cup shredded parmesan/romano cheese blend, 1/2 tsp minced garlic and 1/3 cup milk because it was a little dry. Best meatballs I have ever made!"

MY REVIEW

"This is a very nice (basic) recipe for Turkey Meatballs. I always add cracked black pepper, one finely minced garlic clove, 1/4 C. of Grated Parmesan Cheese (from the plastic jar), a generous sprinkle of Old Bay Seasoning, and some (fresh) finely chopped parsley. I use whole wheat Panko bread crumbs, since they give the meatballs a nice texture, and they're 'healthier'. They're very delicious."

"These were good. I used fresh spinach and added fresh garlic, oregano, and thyme. My toddler even enjoyed these!"
