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

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

MY REVIEW

"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."

"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!"
