Lean Turkey Meatballs

These turkey meatballs were a fantastic hit with the kiddos, and little did the kids know that these are far healthier for them than the pre-cooked frozen meatballs that can be bought at the store – it’s a bonus that these are also cheaper to make at home!

    Thanks for sharing your recipe, Janice. For someone like myself who doesn’t know how to cook, I still found your recipe quite straightforward! One quick question: What oil do you use for the baking? Extra virgin olive?

    Cheers,

    Wow these look awesome!
    Love the fact that they’re baked rather than fried.

    Gonna have to toss these together with some low carb spaghetti noodles and give them a try!

    This is the best recipe I’ve made in months! I think this needs to be a once a week ordeal in my house. Fantastic! I think tomorrow, I’m making a huge batch and freezing them!! Thank you
