Reviews for Spinach Turkey Meatballs
"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!"
"Not bad! I added them to spaghetti sauce and they were good!"
"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!"
"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 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."
