I don’t usually buy ground turkey, but I found some on clearance the other day and decided to try a little experiment. See, my husband always notices when I replace ground beef for ground turkey. I think it tastes fine, but he isn’t a fan. I decided that I would try making meatballs with the turkey instead of trying to sneak it in a dish.
It worked! They didn’t even know it was turkey!
Actually, it worked so well, that we wound up using most of the meatballs that I had made to freeze for dinner the next night! All of my kids loved them. My son, Caleb even ate them, and he doesn’t eat anything. I was so excited!
The great thing about these meatballs is that you can mostly use what you have on hand to make them. They can also be served by themselves as an appetizer, in spaghetti, or with vegetable sides as you meal. If you don’t have turkey, you can always use ground beef or ground chicken instead. And you can double or triple the recipe.
Freezer Cooking Friendly!
If you are having a freezer cooking day, these are a great item to make and freeze. Buy extra meat (especially if you find it on clearance) and make a bunch. These will only take about 30 minutes!
