I don’t think it is too early to tell you because this blog is my wholelife dairy and if something ‘bad’ happens I would have to share it with you anyway. So now STOP talking about me and a little more words about this healthy turkey spinach meatballs recipe!
You will makes about 30 meatballs with this recipe and it took about 15 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to bake them. I probably over baked mine – the color was a bit darker than I would like – but it taste great and crispy this way. I am pretty sure you can freeze them before baking and bake them frozen the day you want to eat them. I did this for previous meatballs recipes and it always works like a charm. You know how I love make-ahead recipe right ?! So I served those meatballs in a skillet – just because it looks pretty use any dish you like – and I added some extra tomato sauce and creamy feta sauce in the pan to decorate and dip the meatballs.
Know time to go for my morning snack so sorry I have to leave the desk and let you make this lovely turkey spinach meatballs recipe.
Any questions, tips advice, JUST let me know, as always Carine is here for you !!!
