Baked Turkey Spinach Meatballs

About This Recipe:

Even though I don’t eat beef, I still enjoy a good meatball made from ground turkey, chicken, or pork. These turkey spinach meatballs are super healthy, quick to make, and can be made with any protein. If you have a food processor, I highly recommend using it to finely chop the spinach so that it incorporates into the meatball better. If not, a knife (and some time and patience,) will work just as well. I like to serve these meatballs with marinara sauce, and a side of spaghetti or bread.

Enjoy!
